This annual conference welcomes educators from all over the world to learn from speakers about instructional methods for elevating literacy in K-12 classrooms.

Unlike typical conferences, Judson's conference is limited to 200 participants, ensuring that every attendee gets a seat and the opportunity to interact with speakers.

In addition to several keynote speeches, there will also be breakout sessions, workshops, and book sales.

Judson University's Master of Education in Literacy provides certified teachers with the opportunity to examine and enhance their knowledge base and instructional repertoire with regard to effective literacy practices.

The program is designed for practicing classroom teachers who are motivated to become more accomplished in all areas of literacy instruction.
