While the education enterprise should be glad that curriculum (High-Quality Instructional Materials/HQIM) is finally being recognized as a key element in improving literacy instruction, the field's leaders must now deal with the challenge of implementation. This session aims to help leaders heading into this mission find the "right-sized boat", sharing (1) a vision of how (and why) curriculum should fit into schools' comprehensive literacy-instruction strategies, (2) cautions for leaders about potential missteps and mis-messages, and (3) recommendations for designing, shaping, and maintaining their schools' literacy strategies.
