Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) is an instructional framework for implementing Kentucky’s Academic Standards and improving teacher effectiveness by design: the instructional cycle includes teacher collaboration in designing instruction, analyzing student work, and adjusting instructional practice based upon data and lessons learned about students and their needs. LDC empowers teachers to build students’ literacy skills and understanding of science, history, literature, and other important academic content through meaningful reading, writing and other learning experiences. The building block of LDC is the module, a 2-4 week instructional cycle based upon a worthy, compelling, and rigorous student task.
The LDC website
is a national community of educators providing a teacher-designed and
research-proven framework, online tools, and resources for creating
literacy-rich assignments and courses across content areas.
LDC Core Tools
is a guided online experience that supports a teacher in planning,
creating, and thinking through each of the four LDC module sections.
