Attend Session First Session of The Evolution of the Principalship Learning Series

Leading Literacy Webinar Series

Principals are leading schools through significant challenges and uncertainties and, in the process, some aspects of teaching, learning, and leadership may be indelibly changed. The Evolution of the Principalship learning series is an invitation to join with national experts in considering how principals’ work has changed and how our understanding of school leadership has evolved. Throughout this learning series, which is supported by the Wallace Foundation and organized by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and the University Council of Education Administration (UCEA), we will talk with principals, researchers, and other experts about the following: 

  1. What have the disruptions in schooling taught us, as principals and education leaders?
  2. How have principals’ priorities and daily work changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic? Which changes are temporary, and which are indelible?
  3. How can leadership and learning capitalize on community social and cultural histories to deepen engagement, achievement and equity?
  4. What do the changes to school leadership mean for principal pipeline supports, including principal preparation and professional learning?

As you participate in these free online sessions, you can expect national experts to share their research and tools, and to engage you in dialogue about the evolution of school leadership.

Session 1

Leading Literacy: Tapping into Social Traditions to Help Students Read the Word and the World
October 28, 2020, 12:00 –1:30 p.m. EST

If we are to truly prioritize student literacy and equity, principals and teachers must rethink pedagogy, in ways that capitalize upon and extend students’ socio-cultural and historical traditions. This session brings experts together in conversation about how principals’ daily practice can support literacy communities within school, introduces frameworks for organizing a new pedagogy, and discusses how principal preparation and other pipeline initiatives support improved leadership.
