Cindy Lassonde’s book The Literacy Leadership Handbook: Best Practices for Developing Professional Literacy Communities has just been released by Pearson. Her coauthor is Kristine Tucker, a literacy coach teaching in New Jersey. Lassonde’s colleagues from Oneonta’s Division of Education–Dawn Hamlin, Carolyn Chryst, and Krislynn Dengler–along with Mary Ann Luciano from the Teachers’ Center, contributed features on Response to Intervention, ethics in literacy leadership, and critical perspectives. The book offers practical suggestions and guidelines for helping school district literacy leaders achieve growth and development in themselves, their students, the school culture, and in the profession in general. The focus is on fostering collaboration among colleagues, improving teacher effectiveness by involving teachers as learners, and engaging teachers in planning for their own growth and development.
