The conference will center on four interrelated themes: cognitive and linguistic aspects, instructional/educational strategies, socio-cultural factors, and the impact of research in these areas on policy making. The conference intends to facilitate communication and collaboration between researchers,educational leaders, and policy makers. Researchers, policy-makers, educational leaders, and graduate students from different countries will come together to discuss issues pertinent to increasing reading comprehension and enhancing academic achievement among immigrant students at the elementary and secondary level.
