 About MARC

Madison Area Reading Council (MARC) is affiliated with the Wisconsin State Reading Association (WSRA). This council is composed of teachers, librarians, administrators, education students, researchers, professors, reading specialists, and others who are interested in promoting lifelong learning across all content areas. The primary mission of MARC is to promote excellence in reading and writing instruction.

MARC provides opportunities for people to:

  • discuss reading issues
  • keep current on reading research and strategies
  • foster mutual understanding and cooperative work among reading professionals
  • promote the enjoyment of reading

Madison Area Reading Council meets four times a year. Each meeting features a well-known speaker and members receive four newsletters per year.
