Purpose: To launch the professional learning and welcome new ISD/RESA Early Literacy Coaches into the statewide network.

Description: Please join a network of Early Literacy Coaches as we focus on the Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy, Grades K-3, the Essential Coaching Practices for Elementary Literacy, as well as resources related to the statewide literacy coaching initiative. Researchers, Dr. Nell Duke, Dr. Tanya Wright, and Dr. Susan L’Allier will support our learning in understanding the research behind the practices and resources; how they work together; and how they guide your work as a literacy coach. The three days will include information, application, goal setting and opportunities for networking. This professional learning opportunity will be held virtually via Zoom. The Zoom invite will be shared with registrants prior to the event.

Audience: New ISD/RESA coaches and any ISD/RESA coach who has not attended a previous 4-day Institute on the Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy, Grades K-3. A coaching coordinator is asked to attend with each team. For more information on determining your organization's coaching coordinator, please email Erin Brown at or Lisa Brown at
