The Louisiana Department of Education created the Content Leader program to create a pathway for leadership for teachers while simultaneously recognizing the importance of content expertise among school leaders and teachers. With Content Leaders, districts can build internal capacity for professional development and support to promote student achievement and success in Louisiana.
Districts implementing Wit & Wisdom understand that curriculum alone does not lead to student achievement—teachers need support in the form of professional development and ongoing, onsite implementation support. Content Leaders develop their own expertise and that of other teachers through redelivery of Wit & Wisdom PD. They help ensure that teachers receive the implementation support they need to deepen their learning and develop strong ELA instructional practices, ultimately leading to student success.
Upon completion of each Wit & Wisdom PD Session, participants will be given all the materials and facilitation guides needed to redeliver the session to the educators in your building or district.
Additionally, Content Leaders will have extensive opportunities to develop a network of other Wit & Wisdom implementers, giving their school and district access to that network and the resulting additional support that network will provide.
