Description

The West ​Virginia Reading Association ​(WVRA) ​began fifty years ​ago. ​Now ​in 2018, ​the Association ​will ​celebrate ​its ​50th ​Anniversary  ​as ​the ​oldest professional ​organization in ​West ​Virginia ​committed to ​eradicating ​ ​illiteracy ​in ​the ​Mountain ​State. ​ ​ ​In ​1968, WVRA’s key focus ​was ​improving ​reading ​instruction ​for ​all ​ ​students. ​During these fifty years, ​since ​its ​founding, ​WVRA has ​evolved ​and ​made great ​strides ​to ​recognize student ​achievement ​in ​reading and provide ​professional ​development ​for ​all ​educators in ​reading. ​ ​There are ​no ​longer ​“black ​and ​white” ​approaches ​to ​reading, ​but ​there are ​hints of ​grey ​that ​indicate ​a ​blending ​of ​these ​“black ​and ​white” ​approaches ​to reading. However, ​the conference ​committee will ​retain ​the black ​and ​white ​color scheme ​to ​promote ​the ​elegance ​of ​this ​50th ​anniversary ​celebration.
