Literacy Lunch & Lead Conversations
Join us for Lunch & Lead Conversations - a series of monthly virtual conversations with literacy leaders from around the country and Wisconsin. If you are interested in learning more about analyzing your district’s systems, structures, and use of evidenced based practices, this series is for you!
According to the National Association of Educational Progress, Wisconsin’s students are 34% BELOW basic in their reading skills. This means that one in three students will have sub-literacy skills with weak fluency and word recognition. Our mission is to connect you with leadership experts that have demonstrated systems changes in their schools or districts, to begin productive conversations about literacy in Wisconsin.
Lunch & Lead conversations are hosted on Zoom the 1st Friday of each month from 1:00-2:00 PM CST. Attendees must register in advance. Click here to register today! Registrants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining. Recordings will be sent to registrants via email following each meeting. Attend and view as you are able.
*Additional information about Lunch & Lead Conversation guests will be added in the future.
