Training OVERVIEW 

Louisiana’s Board of Elementary and Secondary Education created the Louisiana Content Leader Initiative in 2012 to expand local leadership pathways and to tap talented educators to coach and support other teachers. 

Great Minds® is now an approved provider of ELA Content Leader Training.  

Content Leaders should have: 

  • A passion for teaching Wit & Wisdom 
  • Enthusiasm for working with other educators
  • A belief that every child is capable of greatness
Training BENEFITS 

Content Leaders who complete the training will become experts in the Wit & Wisdom curriculum so they can: 

  • Deliver high-quality professional development 
  • Coach other educators 
  • Support colleagues 

The Content Leader Certification also serves as a step towards the Louisiana principal certification. 

Training Calendar

July–August 2020: 3 PD days + self-directed study
School Year 2020-2021: 6 PD days + self-directed study

Due to the continually evolving Covid-19 health crisis, we are considering what changes we may need to make to our training plans. For now, we have postponed the start date for Content Leader Training. We are planning for the first experience—a virtual orientation—to occur in July. We are also considering adding virtual professional development options. As the situation unfolds, we will communicate revised dates and delivery options to all educators accepted into our program.
