Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) Toolkit


The Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) offers a research-based approach to incorporating literacy into all content areas in grades K-12 by providing a common framework that facilitates teacher creativity and provides differentiated, meaningful, and engaging learning experiences for students.  The toolkit is a resource for LDC teacher trainers, LDC teachers, and anyone interested in learning more about LDC. Start by reviewing the documents entitled “Introduction to the Toolkit” and “Toolkit Tips for Trainers” before proceeding to the training and supplemental materials.

If your school, district, or BOCES is interested in learning more about LDC and/or implementing this approach to incorporating literacy into elementary, middle and/or high school content areas, CEI can assist you with identifying a consultant. To discuss how CEI can support your district with LDC implementation, call 303-736-6477.
