Join us for our 59th Annual Conference, “Reading…the Teachable Moment.” This years conference program will be as comprehensive as ever. It will feature a host of amazingly gifted General Session Speakers, Teaching Edge presenters, and Featured Speakers. It will also include the renaissance of the highly respected IRA Research Institute, as well as symposia, workshops, sessions, and preconference institutes. Every component of the program has been designed to provide the most current and meaningful professional development on a wide range of literacy topics, including the Common Core. The design is a fine balance of interaction with experts and collaboration with colleagues.
The context of all of this is the extraordinary city of New Orleans, which has something special to offer all who visit it. The historical nature of the city, the essence of the culture, the gastronomical delights, the astonishing museums, the ever-amazing jazz, the remarkable people… all of these and the very best in literacy await us as we bring IRA’s 2014 Annual Conference to life.
We will see you in New Orleans! We promise you will be richly engaged with “Your IRA” from the moment you arrive, and, when you travel home, your digital memories will tell remarkable stories of your teachable moments!
