About this guide

Welcome to the 46th Annual Illinois Reading Council Conference, Building Bridges to Literacy, from March 13-15, 2014 at the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel, Hilton Springfield Hotel, and Prairie Capital Convention Center in Springfield, Illinois

A love of books and the ideas they communicate has brought together a diverse ensemble of speakers and attendees to the 46thAnnual Illinois Reading Council Conference, “Building Bridges to Literacy."  For the next few days, we are more than teachers of literacy--we are engineering geniuses communicating and connecting ideas that will build bridges allowing us to close learning gaps for the students we serve.

 

The mission of the Illinois Reading Council is “to provide support and leadership to educators as they promote and teach lifelong literacy.”  But, lately education (We) has built too many walls and not enough bridges. (Isaac Newton)  Curriculum focused on standardized testing is dampening kids’ natural curiosity and driving them away from a lifelong love of literacy. To be literate is to be curious and passionate about learning--to be literate is to be educated in all content areas, all genres, and at all ages.  Education is all a matter of building bridges. (Ralph Ellison)

 

Thank you so much for attending this conference, for reading books, for communicating and connecting ideas which helps the Illinois Reading Council provide the type of quality professional development that knocks down walls and builds bridges to literacy!
