Literacy Leaders

BOYS College builds upon the existing research on the literacy development of African American males to nurture literacy leaders who focus on improving the reading and writing achievement of African American boys in the elementary grades. BOYS College is a critical component to build an early literacy impact pipeline to develop literacy leaders that will be actively involved in impacting the reading and writing achievement of African American boys.   Literacy leaders will learn how to adopt and implement a multidimensional reading model to engage struggling and non-struggling readers and writers with challenging texts across multiple disciplines while concurrently strengthening their concept of reading, providing practice decoding multisyllabic words, improving reading fluency, developing comprehension monitoring skills, engaging in close readings, and reading and writing across multiple texts. Literacy leaders will also strengthen their  research, teaching, and assessment skills.
