Principals ‘talk’ literacy in second Twitter chat

2014 February 20
by HISD Communications

HISD held its second official Twitter Chat for principals, administrators, and other campus leaders on Feb. 20, and the focus of the discussion was once again literacy.

Participants were quizzed about everything from their preferred method of receiving professional development to the one professional resource they would recommend to their peers on literacy.

Answers to the latter question ranged from Dr. Paulo Freire’s work on how to better understand and engage illiterate parents so that “literacy becomes legacy” (suggested by Chief Academic Officer Daniel Gohl) to Guiding Readers and Writers by Irene C. Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell, which was described as “a great guide to quality literacy in the classroom” by School at St. George Place Dean of Instruction Lisa Hernandez.

To read the full discussion, which was moderated by School at St. George Place Principal Adam Stephens, please visit the Storify website.
