The keynote speaker for the 55th Rose Spicola Forum in Literacy Learning will be Catherine Compton-Lilly, Ed.D., the John C. Hungerpiller Professor of elementary education at the University of South Carolina.

Confluences of Possibility: Intriguing Examples of Child-Centered, Culturally Responsive Teaching.

Through examples in multiple real-world contexts, Compton-Lilly will broaden thinking around child-centered and culturally responsive teaching to help students be more agential around anti-racist, abolitionist, and culturally sustaining ideas in classrooms.

  • Select two from multiple breakout sessions led by DFW teachers
  • Graduate student seminar in synthesizing research
