ED is convening its 2010 Reading Institute, in Anaheim, California, July 19-21.
The Institute is part of ED’s strategy to support educators in providing high-quality literacy instruction and to assist state and local policymakers in developing effective, comprehensive pre-kindergarten to third grade literacy programs.
The focus of this year’s Institute is reading comprehension. And this year, for the first time, ED is partnering with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to offer a separate Early Learning and Development Strand at the Institute.
The Early Learning Strand will offer sessions on developmentally appropriate practices in language and literacy for children from birth to third grade, and on planning and building comprehensive early learning systems and infrastructure.
There is no registration fee for the Reading Institute and Early Learning Strand, and all federally funded grantees, educators, state and local decision makers, and other stakeholders in early learning are invited to attend. Registration is permitted through July 5, 2010.
For registration, a draft agenda for the early learning strand, information on pre-conference webinars, and more, please visit http://www.mikogroup.com/2010readinginstitute
We hope to see you in Anaheim!
