Adolescent Literacy Summit
The Manitoba Reading Association has hosted four Adolescent Literacy Summits in Winnipeg. The most recent was held in April 2017 at the Victoria Inn and Conference Centre. Over 400 educators heard from educators including Pernille Ripp, John Schumacher, Linda Christensen, Richard Van Camp, Niiganwewidam James Sinclair, and more. Local educators also gave IGNITE sessions, and two panels – one with authors, the other with students – encouraged teachers reflect on the meaning of critical literacy.
