National Reading Recovery & Early Literacy Conference

The 2019 Reading Recovery & Early Literacy Learning Conference – WORKSHOP PRESENTATIONS and HANDOUTS AVAILABLE NOW!

The Canadian Institute of Reading Recovery National Conference offers an outstanding professional development experience for teachers, principals and senior administrators interested in expanding common understandings and effective practices to maximize student learning and prevent failure.

Reading Recovery is an evidence-based professional development model designed to ensure that the children who struggle the most with early literacy learning gain the skills they need to access a literate and productive future.

The CIRR National Conference is widely recognized as the country’s premier professional development experience for teachers of early literacy. Sessions are designed to present sound learning theory together with instructional best practices for K–3 teachers, Literacy Consultants and Coaches, Resource, Special Education teachers and Early Childhood Educators.  Also included is a vendor trade show where participants can meet publishers and purchase items for themselves and their classrooms.

I loved the conference.  I learned so much in two days that it will take me the rest of the school year to implement half of my new learning. I took 20 pages of notes packed with good ideas. One of my favourite quotes was “ You can’t blame the lettuce for not growing.”.  Which basically meant we need to look at our own practice if a child is not progressing. My head is exploding with optimism!   ~past conference attendee
