2023 DFW Literacy Symposium

October 28 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

The 2023 DFW Literacy Symposium is co-presented by Tarrant Literacy Coalition and Literacy Texas.

The symposium has the theme “Empowerment Through Literacy” and will focus on skills for people who instruct or administer ABE and HSE/GED adult literacy classes. The symposium sessions will be grouped into three “tracks” – one for advocacy, one for ABE instruction, and one for skills specific to low-level adult literacy classes.

Note: This year, there are two symposia in the DFW area. This one focuses on ABE/HSE, as noted above – if you’re looking for ESOL professional development, please click here.
