“The theme of our ILA 2019 Conference—Creating a Culture of Literacy—focused largely on how to infuse literacy throughout every aspect of the school day and students’ lives. When literacy is embedded in every aspect of education, it creates the environment students need to reach their full potential in the classroom and throughout their lives. These ILA 2019 featured sessions demonstrate the importance of working collaboratively to build and sustain a culture that extends beyond the school setting.” The International Literacy Association is offering a free online replay of six sessions from last year’s conference, available until April 30, 2020. Sessions: 1) Creating a Culture of Literacy; 2) What Research Really Says About Teaching Reading—and Why That Still Matters; 3) We Need More Than Diverse Books; 4) Teaching Vulnerable Youth How to Read and Write: Lessons About Life, Literacy, and the Pursuit of Meaning; 5) Choice, Access, Empowerment: Changing the Game for Young Readers; 6) Motivating Readers From the Inside Out: The Five Key Beliefs That Matter Most for Student Literacy

Registration is required, but it is free.

Awesome! Thanks so much for posting this. The registration seemed a little more complex that it needed to be, but on the other hand I'm glad you can download these as mp3s. I'm especially looking forward to listening to session #2, "What Research Really Says", since I think it will be a good antidote to a lot of misunderstanding about the whole "reading wars" issue, which metafilter litigated last summer (unsuccessfully, I think).
