This is a literacy professional development event for teachers, administrators, literacy coaches, and Reading Recovery educators.
Sunday, October 22, 2017 through Tuesday, October 24, 2017
The annual Literacy for All Conference is the Northeast region's leading literacy professional development event for teachers, administrators, literacy coaches, reading specialists, and educators trained in Reading Recovery — an early intervention for first-grade students who struggle in reading.More than 100 workshops for grades PreK–8 address topics including vocabulary instruction, phonics, assessment, genre study, literacy coaching, best practices of Reading Recovery teaching, and more.
This event is organized by Lesley University in collaboration with the University of Maine and the University of Connecticut.
We are no longer accepting 2017 Literacy for All Conference proposals. We will reopen the submission for the 2018 conference in Summer 2017.
"Still one of my favorite conferences with exceptional and inspiring speakers! Lesley University continues to be the leader in literacy education with sound research and best practice."– Mary Almeida, Director of Title I and Literacy
"I was able to take something away from every single session I attended that I could take back to my students and implement right away. I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to teachers from other states and discussing how concepts are being approached at their schools. I not only learned from the presenters, but from my colleagues.– Cynthia Rainville, Title I Teacher
The Literacy for All Conference is one of the best conferences to attend. I am always learning something new. I love being able to choose Reading Recovery sessions in addition to sessions for classroom teachers.– Lisa Hartman, Reading/Literacy Specialist
