Michigan Reading Association
Promoting Literacy Across Michigan
Summer. Summer is a time for all of us to reflect, renew and read. As many of us ended the school year we stocked up on our favorite authors and pulled out the chaise lounge to begin a season of relaxation.
As I begin my year as the President of the Michigan Reading Association I am taking this time to also reflect, renew and read.
Effective professional learning is the foundation of a successful school district. Typically, opportunities for individuals and/or groups to attend professional learning experiences are based on the correlation between the professional learning experience and the district’s school improvement goals.
For those staff members requesting to attend Michigan Reading Association’s conferences and workshops, be sure to plan ahead and allocate funding early. MRA’s Annual and Summer Conferences are great ways to connect your district plan goals with the research and skills needed to teach ALL students!
