|aThe stakes are high in 21st century U.S. education. Literacy skills that were once expected from only the highest performing graduates are now the minimum requirement in the workplace. Complex thinking and communication skills are the standard for workers, as basic tasks have been taken over by computers and automation. Common Core State Standards reinforce the new definition of literacy by raising the bar for student achievement. But how will teachers help students reach that bar? In this video, we’ll visit two examples of integrating literacy education that are working. At the Chula Vista Elementary School District in Chula Vista, California, they make advancing literacy top priority with a systemic approach across the entire 44-school district. Superintendents, board members, principals and teachers are accountable, and their practice of shared leadership supports the school system’s constant demand for improving literacy teaching. In a District with 35% English learner students and where 2/3 of its schools are Title 1, they are beating the odds and closing the achievement gap. At Downers Grove South High School in Downers Grove, Illinois, English and Communications Department Chair, Janice Schwarze leads a grassroots movement with a literacy coaching program. Their team of literacy coaches and content area liaisons strive to include literacy learning in all classrooms, including unconventional classes like art and math. In five years, Downers Grove South High School has seen improved student performance and schools across the country are using their program as a model.
