Literacy Design Collaborative 

The Literacy Design Collaborative (LDC) is a national community of professional educators working together to prepare students for college and the 21st century workplace. Through LDC work, teachers, schools, and districts engage in a reflective and collaborative process, growing their expertise in using their state standards in instructional planning, ongoing curriculum-embedded assessment, and results analysis. Leveraging a network of literacy partners, LDC fosters sustainable growth of its Community of Practice through efficient and productive collaboration for educators across 50 states.
