Literacy Coach Academy Training Modules

The Just Read, Florida! office has created training modules from the 2016 Literacy Coach Academy Training. A facilitator’s guide is provided and is designed to assist trainers in providing professional learning opportunities for middle school literacy coaches throughout Florida.

The training is presented in seven modules that are approximately 90 minutes each; however, the times can be flexible according to the needs of the participants.

Each session includes small group and whole group activities. Small group activities give participants an opportunity to work in pairs or triads before sharing with the entire group.

Each module is designed as a stand-alone for professional development and can be presented in any order according to the needs of the participants. However, module one sets the pace for the training and is a good introduction to any module you use. It would be a benefit to the coaches to participate in module one before beginning the training on the other modules.
