Expertise Matters!


Think about being a part of the 2020 WSRA Unconference while at Learning Together in Communities of Practice. 
The 2020 WSRA Unconference session is not a session proposal.
It is a session choice for the WSRA 2020 attendees.


Learning Together in Communities of Practice
Criteria for the Reviewers

The theme for the Wisconsin State Reading Association's 2020 conference is "Learning Together in Communities of Practice". The 2020 conference, sessions will be categorized into Learning Communities, strands, which are intended to engage participants in highly interactive learning experiences.

We especially encourage submissions from educators who have engaged in collaborative efforts to improve their practice. Our hope is that the 2020 conference leverages and honors teacher expertise as we collectively focus on Learning Together in Communities of Practice. 

The 2020 Program Committee will review all of the submitted proposals. The submitters and their listed co-presenters will receive a letter in the US mail in August, 2019. The letter will include a postcard to mail back to WSRA to acknowledge that the letter was received and to accept the role of presenter for 2020. Please be sure to use your home mailing address. Please use your home email address as well. 

Submit an individual or group session proposal between February 1 and June 1, 2019. The sessions are 60 or 75 minutes long. If your session is longer than 60 - 75 minutes, submit a second proposal with "part 2" in the title. 

The online proposal form will ask you to choose: the Intended Audience and Strands. Please have your co-presenters' names, email address, home address, phone, and his/her bio ready. 
Example: First name Last name, home address, phone, home email; Title I Teacher, School District of ABC
