New Jersey Literacy Consortium

2013-2014 Theme: Addressing the Common Core


The New Jersey Literacy Consortium, sponsored by the School for Global Education & Innovation at Kean University, provides a forum for educators interested in advancing best practices in literacy and in promoting literacy education that meets the needs of all students in a learner-centered and success-oriented environment.

During the 2013-2014 school year, the Literacy Consortium will host author-experts at three separate full-day events. The morning session begins at 8:30 and is geared for district teams consisting of a supervisor and two teachers per district. The afternoon session is dedicated solely for supervisors and begins with lunch followed by a round table discussion with authors related to topics addressed during the morning session.

Registration costs are moderate to encourage participation and the fee for a supervisor and 2 teachers is 9 for the 3-sessions.

The Consortium is designed to build a New Jersey community of educators in literacy education that becomes a "voice" for best practice. This initiative is now in its 7th year and continues to be recognized as an effective model of professional learning in the area of literacy education.
