New Haven, Connecticut (PRWEB) May 16, 2010 -- On Wednesday, May 26 educators, administrators, legislators and parents will participate in a Literacy Forum called, “Connecticut’s Blueprint for Reading Achievement: A Decade Later.” The event is sponsored by Literacy How, Inc. and will take place at Albertus Magnus College, 700 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.

Participants will hear from panelists including Commissioner of Education Dr. Mark McQuillan, Connecticut Blueprint author Dr. Louise Spear Swerling, House Majority Leader Denise Merrill, and others. Stakeholder groups will engage in the dialogue about the future of literacy achievement in the state.

Connecticut’s Blueprint for Reading Achievement, published in 2000, offered specific recommendations for instructional practices backed by scientifically-based reading research. In the decade since, though, Connecticut’s 4th grade reading scores have fallen by one point but national scores have risen seven points on average, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress. Worse yet, Connecticut has the largest achievement gap in the nation.

After the hundreds of millions of literacy dollars that flowed into Connecticut’s coffers during the past ten years (Early Reading Success, Reading First, No Child Left Behind, Title I) and now facing shrinking budgets, what can we learn from 2010 pockets of success to focus the literacy agenda for the next decade?

What: Literacy Forum, “Connecticut’s Blueprint for Reading Achievement: A Decade Later”

Who: Stakeholder groups including educators at all levels, administrators, legislators, parents

When: Wednesday, May 26, 2010, 8:30 am-3:30 pm

Where: Albertus Magnus College, 700 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT

How: For further information and to register, contact Kim Herard at 203-239-7323 or go to our home page at http://www.literacyhow.com. $75 registration fee includes continental breakfast, lunch, materials, and parking. $45 for students and parents. CEUs available.
