Imagining possibilities, nurturing intuition & cultivating creativity
The Secondary Literacy Initiative (SLI) addresses the inequalities in public education by leveraging mandates, and creating transformational change through professional development. From Brooklyn to the Bronx, SLI brings the resources of cutting-edge research from Teachers College into the classrooms of New York City schools. By offering services to networks, school leaders, and teachers, SLI uses the foundation of literacy education across subject areas to create dynamic change. In recent years, SLI has been in the forefront of professional development for designing meaningful curriculum, instructional strategies and assessments that initiate instructional leadership and whole school reform.
