The Literacy Consultants’ Coalition, in conjunction with the Public Education and Business Coalition in Denver, held its second conference on February 27, 2021. The purpose of this conference was to energize and inspire educators as they continue working to meet the needs of all students, including standing against racism and oppressive practices.

This conference fully embraced the mission of the Literacy Consultants’ Coalition: support literacy educators and learners; work to dismantle the operating systems of white supremacy in our schools, classrooms, and communities; and elevate voices of talented BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ educators.

The conference, Teaching Literacy in Times of Change and Uncertainty, took place on Saturday, February 27, 2021 from 8:30 am to 2 pm MST.  Each session addressed one or more of the following strands: 

  1. Design, Content, and Implementation of Rich, Engaging Literacy Learning
  2. Effective Online Learning Strategies
  3. Instructional Challenges During Times of Uncertainty
  4. Social-Emotional Needs of Educators and/or Students
