Celebrating 30 Years of Reading Recovery Implementations Across the United States

The 2016 Annual Illinois Comprehensive Literacy and Reading Recovery® Conference is designed to provide superb professional development and networking opportunities for K-9 classroom teachers, intervention (Reading Recovery, Special Education, ESL)  teachers, instructional coaches, program specialists, and administrators.

Reading Recovery is an evidence-based professional development model designed to ensure that the children who struggle the most with early literacy learning gain the skills they need to access a literate and productive future. 

Both Reading Recovery and the Comprehensive Literacy Model support professional learning and leadership networks within and across school systems focused on continuously improving outcomes for all students.

Conference sessions emphasize the dynamic integration of literacy learning across the curriculum within the educational agencies and policies that influence systemic school renewal.
