Literacy For Life Symposium
Literacy for Life Symposium 2017

Literacy is a valuable life skill for ALL students. Learning to read is all about the process not memorization. While Low Incidence and Life Skills students can be a challenge, it is very realistic to teach the reading process from phonemic awareness to comprehension to each and every student. This requires that we as teachers develop our skills and employ a growth mindset to meet the needs required for these students to learn to read.

This two day symposium will have two featured speakers. Pamela Mims, PhD, Associate Dean of Research and Grants and Associate Professor for the College of Education at East Tennessee State University will present on "Providing  meaningful literacy and ELA instruction for students with low incidence disabilities." Lynn Ecenbarger, M.A., M.S., International Trainer, Staff Development Educator (SDE) will present on "Reading Foundations: Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Fluency for all." Participants will obtain new ideas for effortlessly differentiating the phonological awareness and phonics skills necessary for strategic reading and spelling.
