For 19 years, the Philadelphia Writing Project has convened a Celebration of Writing and Literacy, an annual conference presented by and for Philadelphia educators. This year’s conference theme is “Educating for Justice in the Digital Age.” The conference is co-hosted by the Philadelphia Writing Project, the Teachers Institute of Philadelphia (TIP), Penn GSE, and the Penn Museum.
Join local educators online for two days of learning, reflection, and joy as we share promising practices and resources for supporting writing and literacy among young people!
Saturday and Sunday, October 17 and 18, 2020, from 9am to 1:30pm ET
Participants will join keynotes and concurrent sessions via Zoom. Registered participants will receive links to sessions prior to the conference.
