Graduate Credit for CCIRA Conference
A Reading / Literacy Professional Renewal Course
Earn graduate credit for reflection on your attendance at the 2024 CCIRA Conference on Literacy.
Join us for CCIRA 2024 Branching Out, Staying Rooted. The vision for CCIRA 2024 is to help teachers explore, grapple with, and maybe reconcile their literacy roots with all of the changes that are happening in education today. We are offering a balance of sessions that will encourage teachers to explore their beliefs, but also challenge them to branch out — try new things, explore a new perspective, or reach their audiences just that much better. There are three main branches that we are exploring at the conference — Technology; Diverse Texts and Topics; and Teaching and Pedagogy — and the speakers will each be connected to a branch.
