Reading/Literacy specialists are consistently tasked with critically analyzing and synthesizing literacy research, policy, and promising practices provided at national, state, and local levels. Further, reading/literacy specialists also identify specialized professional associations (SPAs) that support the research, policy, and practices that are most beneficial to educators and students, most likely to effect change on the national, state, or local level, and most aligned to the reading/literacy specialist’s school or district.
For this assignment, research and select one current national, state, or local policy that directly impacts literacy education. Draft a 500-750 word email for the staff advocating for the incorporation of the policy and the specialized professional associations (SPAs) that could assist staff. Examples of SPAs include but are not limited to: International Literacy Association, National Center of Teachers of English, and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
Include the following in your email:
· Summary of the policy and length of time it has been in effect.
· Explanation of why the district is implementing the new policy and the benefits the policy will have on the school’s literacy environment.
· Minimum 2-3 SPAs and their position statements or advocacy work regarding this policy, including the value the SPA has in effecting change at the local, state, and/or national levels.
· At least 2-3 examples of how staff are able to address or implement the policy in their professional practice.
Support your email with 3-5 scholarly resources.
