Literacy Support Service

The CESA #11 Literacy Support Service is a comprehensive project designed to improve the reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills of all middle and high school  students.  The cornerstone of this service is dynamic professional development provided for grades 6-12 teachers across all literacy strands. School personnel will be provided with ongoing professional development opportunities that will support the implementation of research- and evidence-based practices in their classrooms. The Literacy Support Service will incorporate all of the elements of effective adolescent literacy instruction that create a path to improved literacy achievement for all middle and high school students .
