About this learning opportunity

In this community of practice, school leaders establishing and refining Collaborative Response frameworks with a specific focus on literacy will have a chance to connect and network with other participating leaders, share practices that are leading to success for students and staff, and access a variety of resources and samples. As part of the community of practice, school leaders will establish an action plan for their Collaborative Response work and use it as a guide for sharing and planning next steps forward. Each month, participants will be expected to come back to share one piece of their action plan as evidence of the work as it evolves in their school.

The goals of this community of practice are to:
- Deepen an understanding of Collaborative Response as it relates to literacy and refine structures and processes to respond to the needs of students.
- Network with a variety of schools and develop a community of practice that can extend beyond the scope of this learning opportunity.
- Connect to literature related to Collaborative Response to initiate further discussion and exploration
- Collectively develop and share resources to support Collaborative Response structures and frameworks in a variety of school contexts, that honour staff and student diversity.

This community of practice is part of the year long series focused on growing and refining Collaborative Response structures and processes in schools and districts. Visit the 2020-2021 Collaborative Response Learning Series Overview to see all sessions available in this learning series.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
