Dear UCF Literacy Symposium Community,

We hope this announcement finds you and yours well.

This year’s symposium theme is Reigniting Literacy Collaborations. We chose this theme based on feedback from teachers and school leadership teams, which underscored a desire for reestablishing collaborations considering the challenges educators have been experiencing over the past two years.

The UCF 2022 Literacy Symposium virtual webinar series will showcase the professional work of local talent (i.e., FL teachers, instructional/literacy coaches, school administrators, others). Registration is required. All virtual webinars will be offered free of cost via Zoom from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

On April 28 2022, from 6-7 PM, four literacy leaders, Mr. Brent Bechtold, Ms. Kathy Pyle, Ms. Cally Traetto, and Ms. Elisha Zuaro, from the FL K-12 School for the Deaf & the Blind will present on a collaborative literacy community they have created across grade levels and content areas. The title of their presentation is: Literacy Live & Literacy Anytime: School-based Collaborations on Making the BEST K-12 ELA Expectations Accessible, Applicable, and Fun for Everyone!

The COVID-19 virus has brought about many disruptions to our everyday lives. In our efforts to support our educators, parents, and students as we continue to teach and learn remotely, we have prepared a list of literacy and learning resources you can access to keep students reading and learning. Wishing everyone safety and good health.

  • Create strong and long-lasting literacy partnerships between the college of education and practitioners in the field;
  • Create a professional learning community space that is welcoming, inclusive, rigorous, and collaborative;
