OAESA Reading Summit Recap

More than 150 educators gathered October 9 at the Nationwide Conference and Events Center for OAESA’s first ever Reading Summit. Tuesday, we started the day with an informative, motivational keynote by literacy guru and “The Book Whisperer,” Donalyn Miller. The morning continued with eight breakout clinics over three sessions, all of which were designed to connect attendees with crucial information and resources that they could take back to their classrooms the next day. We took a brain break after our clinics with a new session called “Booktalks, Cookies, & Milk.” Everyone was treated to an afternoon snack and a free book, courtesy of Scholastic! The conference was closed with a keynote address by motivational speaker, Byron V. Garrett. Our first Reading Summit was a great opportunity for practical, relevant professional learning.
