Explanation of how we are able to provide differentiated services to meet the individual needs of schools and districts.

National Literacy Coalition services begin with the process of building a shared knowledge and vocabulary base around effective reading and writing instruction and assessment methods.
Specific, needs-based services (for each staff member) are provided through ongoing, site-based support including demonstration teaching, collaborative co-teaching, classroom coaching, and ad hoc training.

How will we evaluate our services and support to schools and districts and its effectiveness in school/ district/ student achievement?
