Community Literacy Summit 2018
Reading by Third Grade: Our Shared Opportunity, Our Shared Responsibility
The Literacy Center of West Michigan invites you to attend the Sixth Annual Community Literacy Summit on Thursday, January 25, 2018.
The Summit seeks to convene community leaders, institutional policy makers, parents, and educators to discuss and understand the issues and conditions associated with children reading proficiently by the end of third grade. The Summit will create a dynamic space for sharing our understandings and exploring opportunities for optimizing reading success for children in West Michigan.
Keynote speaker Mr. Claudio Sanchez, education correspondent for NPR, will provide a national context for the conversation. A former elementary and middle school teacher, Mr. Sanchez will enrich and expand the understanding of the key issues of educational reform.
Attendees will have the opportunity to attend two of ten breakout sessions from key leaders in the field of literacy and education. Read more about the available sessions online or in our printed program.
Listen as CLI Director Mike Nassar and Executive Director Wendy Falb discuss the Summit on the WGVU Morning Show with Shelley Irwin.
