Join us at the 2023 Wisconsin Literacy Research Symposium as literacy experts will share with teachers and administrators their research about knowledge-building for enhancing reading comprehension. Dr. Nell Duke’s term “compreaction,” informs that reading is an active process that empowers readers for better understanding and bridging their knowledge in a real-world context with participation. With the increasing prevalence of the term “knowledge-building” in education, this symposium presents a space for dialogue to make sense of the research and the practices that facilitate the intersection of text comprehension and knowledge-building.


Metered/mobile app parking is available in Lot R or city streets. (see map)


Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. on June 12.
