K-3 Literacy Online Conference

The DPI is presenting an online conference designed for Wisconsin’s “early literacy leaders,” particularly reading specialists and principals who serve students, grades K-3.

The online “Literacy (Un)Conference” will take place April 15 and 16, with prerecorded video sessions (similar to webinars) posted in the morning for flexible viewing throughout the day. Each day also has a corresponding opportunity to “chat” online with presenters—experts and Wisconsin educators—during evening hours.

The corresponding live chat for the April 15 sessions about “Standards-Based Instruction and Assessment” will be held that night at 7:00 p.m.

The live chat for the April 16 sessions about “Planning for Professional Learning and Collaboration” will be held about a week later, on April 25 at 7:00 p.m.

State Superintendent Tony Evers will address the conference via video. Governor Walker may also contribute a video message.

More information can be found on Read Wisconsin. When available, a link to the Literacy (Un)Conference website will also be posted there.
