Chat with the Coordinator August 2014

Posted by on 16 August, 2014

DRUM ROLL, PLEASE…Please click on the tab for the newest edition of The Missouri Reader. This interactive journal is NOT “your grandma’s literacy journal!!” It is interactive; it is filled with useful articles that will appeal to a variety of educators; AND it is WORTH sharing with all of your colleagues! MSC-IRA encourages you to submit articles and pictures of useful, successful evidence-based practices that are happening in your classroom. Perhaps you are using technology in a unique way for literacy development with your students. Would you like to review a professional book? There are places for your name and your article then! When you click on The Missouri Reader tab, there are other tabs that provide information for article submission. MSC-IRA would like to thank Dr. Julie Bryant and Ms. (soon to be Doctor!) Jennifer Fox for their leadership and editorial expertise as the journal has gone through a remarkable and exciting transformation.

And now, a word about the 2015 International Reading Association Annual Conference being held in St. Louis, MO. MSC-IRA hopes that there will be high representation from our membership from across the state at this exciting conference. This is in our “own backyard,” so to speak, and we want to ensure that our home state is well represented. Volunteers will be needed. If you know that you will be able to volunteer, please reach out to our President, Diana Houlle at We cannot, at this time, let you know whether you will be selected as a volunteer or in what capacity you will be working. It is still early in the planning process. We are just ensuring that we have a bank of names on which to call when the time comes.
