7 reasons to attend Reading For The Love Of It

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:

  1. Keynotes from your favourite authors and literacy advocates...like Laura Numeroff and Humble the Poet!
  2. 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.
  3. A chance to check out exciting exhibitor displays, and the latest children’s books and novels from an array of book publishers and stores.
  4. Engage in important discussions and learning around important topics like fake news, mindfulness, STEAM and more.
  5. Network with other educators from across Canada.
  6. Be a fan. Get your books signed from renowned authors and illustrators like Vikki VanSickle and Barbara Reid. Your students will love this!
  7. Walk away with strategies and ideas to inspire you throughout the rest of the school year.

Date & Time: Thursday, February 22 & Friday, February 23
