For 20 years, through a dynamic partnership between campus and community, SCALE has developed leaders who are agents of social change. Each year, SCALE hosts the Read.Write.Act. conference, which brings together people from around the country who are committed to creating a more just society by engaging young people in literacy education. SCALE will hold its 2nd Annual Virtual Conference on November 4-6, 2009, featuring web-based presentations on a variety of topics relevant to literacy leaders, researchers, and students. We invite you to submit your proposals for workshops!

If your workshop is selected, SCALE staff will work with you to transform PowerPoint presentations, handouts, and activities into Adobe Connect online presentations. Presentations will last for 50 minutes and should be focused on the topic areas mentioned below. Presentations will be reviewed as they are received and selected presenters will be notified on or before October 12, 2009. We suggest co-presenting and encourage faculty/student teams and collaborations with community partners.

We realize that for many of us, this is a new way to share knowledge with the field. We encourage both experts and novices to submit proposals and promise technical support to those trying something new!

If you have questions, please contact Megan McCurley at or 919-843-4494.
