DESE's K-12 Missouri State Literacy Plan Informational Workshop - Hosted by the PDNGKC

In Missouri, local school boards make curriculum decisions tailored to the needs of their students and communities. The state literacy plan is not a mandated document for districts but rather a collection of resources, ideas and themes that might be considered in building a local, comprehensive literacy plan.

The K-12 Missouri State Literacy Plan is an evidence-based resource for administrators and teachers with useful information for parents and caregivers all along the K-12 continuum. It provides information on integrating literacy instruction with the state standards and current knowledge about literacy development. It offers ideas and links to resources to promote literacy, provides clear guidance on the components of a comprehensive literacy system, incorporates evidence-based practices necessary to achieve long-term success for our students and guides districts in developing a comprehensive literacy plan.

Components of the K-12 Missouri State Literacy Plan

  • Leadership and Sustainability
  • Standards-based Curriculum
  • Intentional Instruction, Intervention and Enrichment
  • Assessment
  • Partnerships

This interactive half-day workshop will provide participants a blueprint with the essential components of an effective district/building literacy plan for improving student literacy. Participants will have time to reflect using the “What’s Your Status?” questions either as starting points for developing a new local literacy plan or evaluating a current plan. Time for questions/answers and sharing of resources will be a priority.

Participants are encouraged to bring their copy of the K-12 Missouri State Literacy Plan available August 1, 2019, on the DESE English language arts web page - https://dese.mo.gov/college-career-readiness/curriculum/english-language-arts

Using the K-12 Missouri State Literacy Plan as a guide, it is the hope that individual school districts will design their own literacy plan to meet the needs of their students.
