The Teaching Edge Speaker Series was the "hot ticket" at the 2011 International Reading Association (IRA)
Annual Convention in Orlando. At the 2012 Convention in Chicago, some new faces appear and some old favorites return in what promises to be our best Teaching Edge series yet. The line-up includes Regie Routman, Kelly Gallagher, Irene Fountas & Gay Su Pinnell, Ernest Morrell, Doug Fisher & Nancy Frey, Lori Oczkus, Alfred Tatum, and The Two Sisters (Gail Boushey and Joan Moser).
This month’s Convention Insider episode features an interview with Valerie Ellery as she talks about the gems of wisdom and inspiration attendees will take away from the 2012 Convention. The Insider also catches up with Page Turner Adventures, the Emmy Award-winning production company that puts a unique spin on educational entertainment. The team interviews Amy Spiker who nominated teacher Lori Trevillyan for the IRA Celebrated Teacher of the Year contest. Next month, Convention Insider is on location in Chicago.
The Itinerary Program Planner for the 2012 Convention goes live this month, and registration for the IRA Annual Convention and housing online reservations go live on December 1, 2011.
