Description:

Literacy is essential not only for academic success, but for unlocking a student's full potential in the 21st century. Yet boosting literacy achievement at the secondary level brings unique challenges that demand innovative, outside-the-box thinking.
Educators, researchers, and leading voices will come together to bridge the literacy gap for adolescents.

Through inspiring keynotes, interactive workshops, and lively discussions, we will tackle crucial topics like: Applying the latest research on the adolescent brain to teach critical reading, writing, speaking and listening skills; Making literacy instruction engaging and relevant for today's teens; Integrating literacy development across all content areas including science, history, and math; Scaffolding literacy for English language learners and struggling readers; Building a culture of reading and writing even in the digital age; Preparing diverse secondary students for the literacy demands of higher education and modern careers.

Leave the summit re-energized and equipped with fresh knowledge, actionable strategies, and a network of fellow literacy leaders dedicated to helping secondary students reach their potential as thriving, literate members of society. Join us as we delve deep into the collective challenge of reading between the lines and forging new paths to adolescent literacy achievement.
