Early Childhood Strand
ECEACosponsored by the NCTE Early Childhood Education Assembly (ECEA),  the strand features Saturday speaker Anne Haas Dyson and a two-hour symposium, “Reclaiming Curiosity: Having the Courage to Inquire with Kids,” that will challenge your thinking about critical literacy. The ECEA encourages early childhood educators to revel in the joy of early literacy at this year’s WLU Literacies for All Summer Institute early childhood strand!

Preconference Workshop:  Thursday, July 14
Everyday Advocacy: Changing the Story of Literacy Education
This workshop will immerse teachers in ways to build upon their individual stories to become everyday advocates—agents for change who work within their local contexts to subvert the current narrative about schools, teachers, and literacy learning in ways that are smart, safe, and savvy.

Symposium Sessions
Our Saturday symposium sessions feature two-hour in-depth experiences for early childhood, elementary, secondary, and college educators.
