International Reading Association: Podcasts

Publish date:

Enjoy the outdoors this summer while working on professional development by listening to some of these podcasts offered by the International Reading Association. These podcasts cover a plethora of topics, primarily on reading, of course, but also offer ideas on writing strategies. With discussions on literacy development in early readers to ideas for teaching vocabulary to middle and high school students, you will be sure to find something that will help you in your Language Arts instruction. If you’d rather read than listen, many of the articles are available in PDF format.
