This conference is designed to focus on the U.S. Department of Education’s Reading First Initiative that calls for ALL students to become successful readers. Based on research and best instructional practices, the conference centers around the five critical areas of reading instruction identified by the National Reading Panel.

In the forty-eight breakout sessions over two days, you will learn the answers to the following critical questions:

    • Are Indian and Alaska Native Educators well equipped to implement effective research-based reading instruction?
    • Do we as Educational Leaders have the capacity to establish and sustain professional development plans that utilize best instructional practices?
    • Do we as Indian Educators and Para Educators have foundational knowledge and skills to implement the Reading First Initiative?
  • Are we ready to engage as partners in the national movement to improve reading achievement for ALL American Indian and Alaska Native students?

Leading reading experts and workshop leaders will provide theoretical foundations and “hands on” techniques and strategies to make your students successful readers!
