Join us for Using Dialogic Reading to Promote Emergent Literacy and SEL, as part of UCF's Literacy Symposium Express series. 

To support the needs of PreK-12 educators during this unprecedented time, the UCF Literacy Symposium is offering an Express virtual event on Literacy Engagement and Socio-Emotional Learning for educators, parents, literacy friends, and advocates. This series of timely, live, interactive, and professional learning sessions will be offered virtually each month for free to registered participants.
