Conference Flyer

This conference aims to bring together educators from the greater Los Angeles area dedicated to growing students as readers and writers.
This year, our keynote speaker will be Dr. Brian Kissel, Professor of Literacy and Elementary Education at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and author of When Writers Drive the Workshop: Honoring Young Voices and Bold Choices.

With over twenty years of experience researching in his own and others’ classrooms, Brian noticed a growing trend where writing instruction is driven by teachers, standards, and curriculum rather than by the students as writers. Brian will help us envision classrooms where writers have “author”ity, self-reflect on their learning, and flourish.

Morning and afternoon breakout sessions will consist of a variety of workshops, roundtables, and panel discussions designed for the wide range of K-12 teachers and administrators. These sessions will be led by local teachers and administrators, education experts, and even children’s book authors!

Exhibits will be available throughout the day. Snacks and lunch are included.

We hope you can join us for this exciting event!
