Literacy at the National Conference

by School's Out Washington | | Posted under Bridge Conference

Dare to Disrupt!

If there is one skill that makes learning possible, its literacy. Its not just the responsibility of classroom teachers to teach this skill. All of us in this field, but especially those of us involved in summer learning, have a responsibility to keep kids reading so they can keep learning both when the school bell rings and long after they graduate.

The National Conference on Afterschool and Summer Learning is coming up on October 24, 25, and 26, and we’re proud to feature these three sessions on literacy where you can learn how successful out-of-school time organizations make learning about reading and writing fun!

Register for the conference today so you don’t miss out.
