Welcome to the WSRA 2017 Convention Webpage!

Location - Wisconsin Center District, 400 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9 through SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2017

From Deborah Cromer, 2017 Convention Chair: As we gather in Milwaukee, may we remember that being literate is more than something we do for testing and job training purposes. May we consider how by Reading Our World(s) ~ Composing Our Lives ~ Realizing Our Humanity, we and our students, can become more effective readers, writers, teachers, and wiser, more compassionate, more hopeful human beings who are better able to sustain and enrich life on this planet. Together, may we rediscover the red thread of meaning and purpose at the 2017 Wisconsin State Reading Association Convention.
