Culturally Responsive Literacy Education Conference Breakout Presentation Proposal
We are excited to invite proposal submissions for the Winter 2022 virtual Culturally Responsive Literacy Education Conference to be held on Saturday, February 26th, from 8:30 a.m.-4:15 p.m. This conference is focused on making our culturally responsive literacy instructional practices visible for one another to learn from.

This conference is being co-sponsored by the University of Alaska Southeast School of Education (through the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies Grant) and Sealaska Heritage Institute.

Early childhood, K-12, university, and community educators are highly encouraged to submit proposals for an hour-long breakout session related to instructional practices that support students' engagement and proficiencies related to reading, writing, talking and listening. We value proposals that provide a focus on best practices to support all students, including specific approaches when working to integrate arts and culture into the classroom, and supports for Alaska Native students and English Learners. We value the diversity of our Alaskan students, and proposals that support the engagement and growth of these diverse learners.

We encourage presenters to consider incorporating a variety of presentation tools, interactive strategies, and methods used to engage and inform audience participation. Preference will be given to proposals that illustrate relevance to the conference topic, creativity, and demonstrated expertise related to the topic. Presentations related to Alaska Native Education should highlight practices and models that have been developed by and/or for Alaska Native students that show promise for strengthening the field of Alaska Native education.

Proposals will be accepted through January 17, 2022.

Benefits for your participation include: contributing to the field of literacy education in Alaskan communities, showcasing effective professional practice, obtaining feedback from colleagues, conference registration, and an honorarium.

Because we will be building an archive of presentations for future viewing, consent for video and audio recording of presentations must be given by both the lead primary and co-presenters for all accepted submissions. Upon acceptance, the lead presenter and all co-presenters will be registered for the conference. Additional information will be provided to all accepted presenters, and full technical support will be provided to presenters as they design presentations for the virtual platform.
