Call for Proposals

Priority Deadline: May 29, 2015

SUBMIT Your Proposal Today

Each year, SCALE hosts the Read.Write.Act. Virtual Conference to connect college students, community members, program administrators and non-profit professionals around issues of literacy and social justice.

We are seeking proposals for 1-hour webinar-based workshops with the following outcomes:

1- Develop participants’ skills in addressing and navigating difficult conversations and experiences surrounding issues of race, class, power and privilege in literacy or community service settings

2- Provide models of civic/community engagement projects or programs. We are especially interested in models that include a social justice training or focus

3- Provide specific teaching techniques based on best practices for student-led and community-based literacy groups and organizations

4- Describe systemic issues that lead to barriers in access and what can be done to effect change

Submit a proposal

The Read.Write.Act. Conference is now in its 23rd year! While originally the conference took place in Chapel Hill, NC, it has since become virtual to be able to better include literacy advocates, like you, across the country and the globe. This will be our 8th year of the virtual conference!
