The PaTTAN Literacy Symposium is the foremost literacy professional learning event in the science of literacy. Hollis Scarborough’s Reading Rope (2001) provides the theoretical framework for the symposium. Pre-eminent international, national, state-level presenters and educator implementation teams will share recent research and advances in the science of literacy.
