Abstract

In the summer of 2006, the University System of Georgia's Reading Consortium and the Georgia Department of Education hosted a Literacy Summit, bringing together faculty from public and private institutions in Georgia and representatives from the Department of Education and the Georgia Professional Standards Commission. The purpose of this summit was to analyze the status of literacy and literacy teacher education in Georgia, to reflect on research that could inform the state's progress, and to develop position statements and recommendations to guide future work in this area.
