Principals as Literacy Leaders Project


The Principals as Literacy Leaders Project targeted improvement in the reading abilities of students in low socioeconomic status and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Over a two-year period (2009–10), principals attended five one-day professional development workshops addressing instructional leadership; best practice in teaching reading; using data; and planning, implementing and evaluating evidence-based literacy interventions. Between workshops, principals worked with teachers to assess the needs of their own students and develop a literacy intervention to address those needs.
