Reading symposium earns rave reviews

The Office of Secondary English Language Arts hosted its first Reading Symposium in June and received very positive feedback.

The keynote speaker for the event was Alfred Tatum, Ph.D., associate professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Tatum, a former public schools teacher and reading specialist, is the author of award-winning books including Teaching Reading to Black Adolescent Males: Closing the Achievement Gap and Reading for Their Life: (Re)Building the Textual Lineages of African American Adolescent Males.

Here are a few pictures from the event:
