Welcome To The Greater Washington Reading Council
The Greater Washington Reading Council sets its mission as promoting literacy and literacy education in this Northern Virginia region. A local affiliate of the Virginia State Reading Association, the Greater Washington Reading Council members are committed to supporting teachers, administrators, and the general public in the best practices of literacy instruction, pre-K to college and beyond.
Through professional conferences, an online newsletter, an evolving website, and a members-only journal, the Greater Washington Reading Council works to support the goals of the Virginia State Reading Association and the International Literacy Association. Through these professional opportunities and continuing education events we, the members and literacy leaders in our region, assist the children of Northern Virginia in reaching the literacy standards set by the Commonwealth and the robust literacy objectives of the 21st century.

2019 Fall Conference
The GWRC FALL CONFERENCE featuring Cornelius Minor will take place November 2, 2019 at George Mason Science and Technology Campus.
Cornelius Minor is a Brooklyn-based educator. He works with teachers, school leaders, and leaders of community-based organizations to support equitable literacy reform in cities (and sometimes villages) across the globe. Whether working with educators and kids in Los Angeles, Seattle, or New York City, Cornelius uses his love for technology, hip-hop, and social media to bring communities together. As a staff developer with the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, Cornelius draws not only on his years teaching middle school in the Bronx and Brooklyn, but also on time spent skateboarding, shooting hoops, and working with young people.
