In this guest blog post, she cites the recently released survey data on remodeling literacy instruction from the National Center for Literacy Education. "It found that in schools where educators report that professional collaboration is routinely practiced, trust among all educators is high, and new learning about effective practices is shared much more rapidly," she writes.
