Region 4 ESC
Reading and Language Arts Virtual Conference
Virtual Learning, Visible Results
Come join us for an exciting and informative day of learning as we explore a diverse array of instructional approaches, strategies, and scaffolds that support students in face-to-face, digital, and virtual environments.
In addition to enjoying presentations from recognized keynote speakers, participants will choose from a variety of virtual sessions encompassing multiple topics related to literacy and language arts across all grade levels.
* New! Because all of the sessions will be recorded, participants will have on-going access to the content for a period of two weeks for the keynote presentations, and one month for all of the breakout sessions.
