About the Content Leader Program

Great Minds® provides Content Leader training in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) to meet the need for professional development and support resources in schools across Louisiana.

Our team is here to help improve education in Louisiana by supporting educators with high-quality curricular materials and implementation products and services.

Content Leaders are educators with the expertise and resources to provide high-quality curriculum-specific professional learning. Trained Content Leaders deliver professional learning experiences to other teachers in their district to support the effective implementation of Great Minds curricula. The Content Leader program is an ongoing opportunity for extensive professional growth.

With Eureka Math®, Wit & Wisdom®, and PhD Science® now offering BESE-approved Content Leader training in Louisiana, Great Minds is the only Tier 1 curriculum provider to offer all three Content Leader programs.


Great Minds - Content Leader

Benefits of the Content Leader Program

Content Leader training is a cost-effective, powerful resource for any school or district. By investing in and developing Content Leaders, districts build a strong bench of local educators with the knowledge, skills, and resources to provide year-round professional learning and implementation support to other teachers at all levels.

Leaders trained by Great Minds are fully equipped with the knowledge and materials to redeliver Content Leader sessions or professional learning to help other teachers develop strong instructional practices that set students up for success.

For teachers, Content Leader training is a step toward school leadership positions and/or Louisiana’s principal certification by earning a Content Leader microcredential through BloomBoard.
