Strengthening Reading through Literacy Coaching: The Rolling River School Division Model

To improve reading outcomes for children, the Rolling River School Division embarked on a division-wide professional development initiative focused on K-6 classroom instruction in literacy. To facilitate this project, the district hired Joe Stouffer as their literacy coach who designed teacher learning sessions and in-class support drawing on some aspects of Reading Recovery professional development. Now in its fourth year, the district has seen tremendous growth in overall reading achievement. In this session, Marg and Joe share Rolling River’s design for instructional improvement and share the district’s outcomes.
