Graduate Credit Requirements
- Fully engage at the Iowa Reading Conference by attending all 12 sessions.
Assignment: Write a reflection on each session you attended. Your
reflection should include highlights, content that opposed or aligned to
your current practice, primary take-aways, and areas where you would
like to do more research.
- Extend and share your learning in an area of interest following the conference.
Assignment: Choose one area from the session reflections you
expressed interest in researching further. Find at least three articles in
scholarly journals that relate to that area of interest. Synthesize what
you learned from those articles in a manuscript form, similar
to an education blog, website or magazine. Use examples
from your experiences with children to connect the research to practice
and increase the interest to a potential reader.
- Submit both assignments digitally by July 31.
See syllabus for specific requirements, submission details and
information on requesting transcripts. The syllabus will be provided on
the first day of the conference at Northwestern College’s booth.
Course registration is nonrefundable.
