Hazelton Manor Conference Centre, 99, Vaughan, ON, L4K 1A3, Canada.

Bright Futures - Setting Foundations for Literacy  is a one-day conference hosted by the Canadian Institute of Reading Recovery in Toronto, ON on April 23, 2020

This event has been canceled due to COVID-19.  We are offering 3 learning events in 2021 - Bright Futures Literacy Conference in Victoria on APril 23, 2021 with Ruth Culham.  Bright Futures Literacy Conference in Haliafx on April 16-17, 2021 with Adria Klein and a National Early Literacy Confernce in Winnipeg on April 19-20, 2021 with CC Bates, Mary Howard and Devon Clunis.  Look for these events on our website - www.rrcanada.org

This learning event is for Primary Educators, Kindergarten and Early Years Educators, Reading Recovery Teachers, Administrators and anyone interested in the development of young readers and writers.  You will leave the day with many new ideas and tools that you can use right away.  

This research-based professional development opportunity for educators is respected and appreciated as the place for tools to enable the highest quality literacy instruction for all students. Workshops are led by local and national literacy experts.  These sessions focus on best instructional practices in the areas of: reading, writing, literacy coaching, oral language, comprehension, vocabulary, fluency, word study, phonemic awareness, differentiated instruction, strategies for struggling readers, assessment, diverse learners, and more.

Dr. Adria Klein, Professor Emertia of Reading Ediucation at California State University and Reading Recovery Trainer will be the keynote speaker and will also host a workshop. Her keynote is titled, Oral Language, Reading and Writing: Scaffolding Connections for All Learners by Teaching for Transfer. If we Harness the established power of children's oral language to literacy learning from the beginning, so that literacy knowledge and oral language processing power move forward together, linked and patterned from the start, that will surely be more powerful. 

We will also have 6 concurrent workshops to choose from, led by literacy experts who will leave you with useful tools that can be applied immediately to your classroom - workshops are being confirmed now.  Dr. Carl James, Professor, Jean Augustine Chair in Education, Community & Diaspora at York University will provide a dynamic closing keynote address to end our day.  A small exhibition of publishers and classroom materials will be available for you to review materials and make purchases for yourself or your classroom.  Already confimed are: Scholastic, Nelson, Pearson, Wintergreen and Saunders Books.

This event will take place at the Hazelton Manor Banquet and Conference Centre with plenty of free parking, wifi, lunch and refreshments.

This is a professional development experience you will not want to miss!  The Canadian Institute of Reading Recovery has been providing the best professional learning for primary educators for over 20 years.  Register early to catch the early bird registration rate and save $39
