Every two years, teachers with my school board are given access to a professional development fund to attend conferences ($800). I've been to ASCD's & Reading Recovery's annual convention, regional conferences for the IRA and a few small-time workshops with BER. I've found some of the sessions at these conferences to be decent but never have I come away from one say, "that was worth every minute". Is there anyone out there that can recommend a "don't miss this conference" type of conference? I get to go to one this year so I'm trying to find something worthwhile. Posting links to the organization would be helpful if you don't mind. Thanks in advance.
