• Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) Modules

    The Literacy Cadre invited content partners from science, social studies, and CTE to engage in a year-long project with the Literacy Design Collaborative. While all modules were reviewed via a rigorous vetting cycle, three modules received exemplar status and were posted on the National LDC site.

    Teachers report that their work on the LDC modules raised their expectations for student work and helped them increase the rigor of writing assignments. The content teachers involved with the work felt the LDC modules helped them better understand how to infuse literacy instruction while also enhancing their subject matter instruction. LDC leads to teacher instructional shifts and improved student outcomes which prepare our students to be college and career ready.

    Delaware Literacy Design Collaborative Modules Nationally Recognized!

    From MaryLynn Huie, LDC Consultant: "Fewer than 10% of modules submitted for national jurying are published in the LDC Curriculum Library as Exemplary or Good-to-Go. The fact that Delaware has 1 Exemplary module and 2 Good-to-Go modules posted in the LDC Curriculum Library is very impressive and speaks highly of the professionalism and expertise of your team."
