Each Literacy Coaching Clearinghouse Forum concerns a particular topic of interest to literacy coaches, reading coaches, reading specialists, and /or instructional coaches. To date, the forums have been hosted by members of the LCC National Advisory Board. Hosts will expand to include LCC Collaborators along with National Advisory Board members.
To respond to a forum topic, you need to register/login to the LCC site. This is a simple procedure, and participation in the forums is free.
The LCC goal is to host a forum once a month. Each forum is open for approximately two weeks, then edited for clarity, and posted as a product in the site.
Each forum begins with ideas and suggested resources from the host of the forum. Forum participants are then encouraged to respond to the ideas and engage in a dialogue with the host and others. We hope to create useful dialogues about particular subtopics that are important concerns to literacy coaches, reading coaches, reading specialists, instructional coaches, principals, district administrators, and others. On occasion, audio and/or video tape may be included related to the topic of a forum.
Some previous forums may still be open for comment. Others are closed but all of the discussion can still be viewed by clicking on the forum.
