The Literacy Connection


     The Literacy Connection (TLC) is a teacher support group founded in 1982 by five teachers.  The membership includes teachers, administrators, parents, and others concerned with literacy education.  Each year TLC presents major speakers from the field of language arts, as well as additional meetings prepared by teachers who share their expertise in the uses of children’s literature, reading, writing, poetry, and assessment.

     Dues of $15 per year includes membership, two issues of The Literacy Connection Newsletter, a compilation of program announcements and educational articles.


Mission Statement

    The members of The Literacy Connection strive to build a community of scholar-teachers who support, share, publish, and disseminate professional information and engage cooperatively in workshops, curriculum development, evaluation and research activities.  We also seek to foster educationally sound practices among teachers, parents, policy makers, and others who are involved and interested in literacy matters.
