Every year the Teachers on Call team looks forward to attending the annual Reading For The Love Of It (RFTLOI) language arts conference in downtown Toronto. This is a longstanding reading convention and celebration of books that is geared towards the education community. This February will mark the 42nd year.
Here are our top 7 reasons to check out this year’s Reading For The Love Of It:
- Keynotes from your favourite authors and literacy advocates…like Laura Numeroff and Humble the Poet!
- Step away from the classroom for professional learning of your choice. There are workshop sessions covering various levels of literacy from kindergarten through secondary school.
- A chance to check out exciting exhibitor displays, and the latest children’s books and novels from an array of book publishers and stores.
- Engage in important discussions and learning around important topics like fake news, mindfulness, STEAM and more.
- Network with other educators from across Canada.
- Be a fan. Get your books signed from renowned authors and illustrators like Vikki VanSickle and Barbara Reid. Your students will love this!
- Walk away with strategies and ideas to inspire you throughout the rest of the school year.
