Martin Luther King Jr. Student Center at Delaware State University, Dover, DE
To raise literacy achievement, improve student engagement, and demarginalize voices in our classrooms and in the literacy field, it is critical that we weave diversity, equity, and inclusion in all our efforts—but if a sense of belonging for all students (and staff) is not achieved, then those efforts are in vain.
The International Literacy Association and Delaware State University invite you to an event geared toward literacy educators and leaders in the Mid-Atlantic region that will include interactive, evidence-based sessions focused on how to foster that sense of belonging—on inspiring change and improving literacy learning through culturally responsive and culturally competent leadership and community building. You’ll learn how to use literature to help students explore social identities, strategies for empowering all learners to become independent readers, and the importance of a building- or district-wide effort in supporting all students. In addition, this in-person event will give you the opportunity to expand your network with fellow attendees engaged in this important DEIB work.
Morning and afternoon refreshments plus a boxed lunch will be provided.
Who should register: Literacy coaches, classroom teachers, reading specialists, administrators, university faculty, and preservice educators
