The Fall 2015 NCSLA Membership meeting was held on November 11th at the Winston-Salem Marriott.

This year’s theme is “Improving Literacy through Science Leadership: Engaging Strategies to Integrate Science and Literacy.”

The program will focus on best practices that work for the development of literacy skills through science programs, as well as the research behind those practices. We will host a variety of speakers and a showcase of exemplary programs that show how to effectively integrate science and literature.
