Wired Wednesday Webinar Series 16-17: Communication for Literacy Collaboration

The WSRA believes literacy is a complex process requiring a comprehensive approach.  This approach to literacy is dependent upon expertise, research, and a growth mindset. As literacy leaders, we must have a deep and current knowledge base about literacy.  However, increasingly, we must also advocate for rich, purposeful, and equitable literacy teaching, learning, and assessment. This three-part webinar series - free for WSRA members - provides concrete strategies that literacy leaders can use immediately to better collaborate around literacy.
