The International Literacy Association’s 2018 conference has come to an end, but for many the work is just getting started!
Following the event in Austin, Texas, from July 20–23, 2018, attendees from around the country are bursting with ideas for the upcoming school year, ready to be true changemakers and inspire their colleagues and students.
HMH contributed to the excitement at the showcase with a variety of in-booth presentations and activities. Here are some highlights from the four-day event that provide a glimpse into the incredible conversations, activities, and speeches that took place this week across ILA.
“I like to think of independent reading as the heart of my classroom. It gives my students a choice.” -@READ180 teacher @MsDendinger #ILA18 pic.twitter.com/Wa2aRWGIFR— HMH Learning (@LeadAndLearn) July 20, 2018
“Teaching does not create mastery. Practice does. The teacher’s job is to facilitate practice while also protecting the feelings and the integrity of the students while they practice.” @MisterMinor #ILA18— penny kittle (@pennykittle) July 20, 2018

I stood in the corner of a room and watched @EllinKeene quietly mentor a group of young teachers.It was a powerful reminder that this revolution is not one of speeches and marches, but one of transformative relationships.In that way, I want to be like her always. #ILA18— Cornelius Minor (@MisterMinor) July 23, 2018
Inspired isn’t even the word. Thank you, @MsKass1 @MisterMinor & @Ninjagenius for a fun, engaging, and immediately applicable session! @ILAToday #ILA18 pic.twitter.com/K3jqyO47ol— Dr. Rachel Lella (@RLellaEdD) July 22, 2018

We have to scaffold comprehension for our students to be successful! Yay Jan Richardson! #ila @Beesreader @NISDEllison pic.twitter.com/SKjZ3gksJI— Paula Warden (@Beesreader) July 21, 2018
Multicultural does not = culturally relevant. Kids need a balance of Mirror texts that connect to them, their lives, their families, their culture, their communities and Window texts that show them the lives of others. #ILA18— Michael Kryszak (@michael_kryszak) July 20, 2018
