Even under “normal” circumstances, teaching reading is hard.

Educators at every level wrestle with teaching reading and writing because there is so much to teach and so little time to teach it well. And with COVID-era challenges, it’s harder than ever!

At National Literacy Institute, we know you want to build better readers and writers. In order to do that, you need a plan for teaching that’s rooted in practical, best-practice strategies. That’s why we are hosting the Super Saturday Literacy Academy!


This fun and engaging day of learning will feature more than 25 virtual, interactive sessions that will bolster your  literacy instruction whether you’re teaching students in person or remotely.

No matter if you are new to teaching or a seasoned pro, Super Saturday will provide the methods and motivation you need to build better  readers and writers!

PD on a Saturday???

Ok, let’s face it—teachers are being stretched to the limit, and weekends are a cherished pocket of personal time. So why would you want to attend a full-day workshop on a Saturday?

Super Saturday is going to be super fun! With free digital giveaways and periodic prize drawings, everyone will be a winner.

You will learn so many practical, ready-to-use strategies, you’ll be excited to return to school on Monday.

Substitute teachers are virtually nonexistent at most schools, making mid-week attendance nearly impossible. Even if you could find a sub, attending on a Saturday means no sub plans!

Attending on a Saturday allows you to participate from the comfort of your own home.

Don’t want to give up your Saturday? No problem! Register anyway so that you have on-demand access to the entire conference after the live event concludes.
