Each year during the 2000-2005 contract cycle, the The Education Alliance, a program of the Education Alliance, sponsors a conference on teaching diverse learners. The 2002 Invitational Conference on Literacy, Diversity and Equity in the Context of Reform was held at Brown University in April, 2002, and addressed issues of literacy learning in the developmental period beyond emergent reading and writingthe years in which students develop and solidify the skills they need for success in high school and beyond. The conference focused on ways to provide equitable opportunities for the literacy development of students from diverse backgrounds.
The Spring 2003 conference will be co-sponsored with the Annenberg Institute for School Reform and will address comprehensive school reform and English language learners with a focus on the secondary level.
