This November the 21st annual Literacy For All PreK-8 Literacy Conference and Reading Recovery Institute will be held in Providence, Rhode Island at the Rhode Island Convention Center. We invite all literacy and Reading Recovery teachers in the northeast to attend this wonderful event! This year a new Technology Strand workshop will be available for those who are using technology in their classrooms to help engage young readers. There are also separate strands designed for literacy coaches, administrators, and trained Reading Recovery teachers. Keynote speakers will include David Booth, Steven Layne, and Susan O'Leary.
