Description

Now What? Helping Students Become and Remain Passionate Readers

The message is clear among literacy communities; we want to help our students become readers for life, we want them to love reading, but we need more ideas. When we believe in choice, when we believe in inclusive access, when we believe we are ready, and yet, we are not sure how to start or how to continue to create thriving reading communities. How do we know they are reading if we don’t quiz them? What do we do with our readers who are not where they should be? What do we do not just on the first day of school but every single day after when those kids who hate reading just grow in their hatred rather than change their mind? What do we do when we are ready for a change in our literacy practices but those around us are not? Focusing on creating authentic conversations, building reading community, and establishing positive reading identity, this session is meant for the educator looking for practical ideas in their quest to help students become passionate readers. In the afternoon session, we will discuss small tweaks and practical tips on how to help students develop their writer’s voice to see writing as something that matters to them. With this renewed investment, we can help them dig deeper in their writing explorations, to truly become passionate writers no matter their skill level.

Fee includes lunch. Vegetarian options are available.
