Judson University is hosting its Literacy in Motion conference. The four day event brings in authors, speakers, and teachers to discuss elementary education, with sessions for teachers in grades K-3 and 4-8.


Size: Unlike typical conferences, Judson is limiting registration to a maximum of 200 participants (100 registration slots for teachers in a grades K-3 and 100 slots for teachers in grades 4-8). This conference allows teachers to actually talk with the speakers – an opportunity quickly lost in large crowds at conferences.


Peace of Mind: You won’t have to fight for a seat after you have paid good money to attend. At the Literacy in Motion Conference, teachers select either a K-3 program or a 4-8 program. Attendees are guaranteed the opportunity to attend ever session geared to their grade-level grouping – and are promised a seat!


Price: Teachers often pay more than $200 to attend a one-day national seminar that provides only one speaker and no meals. How about four days, loads of speakers, and four fabulous meals for a very reasonable price - $320 (all registrants postmarked after April 15).


Schedule: Every day is totally different! Day One features an over-the-top opening keynote and full breakfast followed by two half-day workshops. Day Two allows participants to hear author/illustrator keynotes before moving to breakout sessions focused on using the keynote speakers’ books in the classroom. Day Three offers a morning workshop and rotating sessions in the afternoon. Day Four concludes with a dynamic half-day workshop and our “Great Give-Aways.” Lunch is provided Monday-Wednesday.
