As students are released for the summer, is sending them off with a summer reading list the best way to promote independent reading? Since research indicates that attention spans are waning for learners of all ages, teachers must do more to keep students interested in reading over the summer and prevent the summer slide. In “Summer Reading 501: Helping Generation App Read This Summer,” Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair, New Canaan High School, CT; and Jane Lofton, Teacher Librarian, presented creative ideas to get students excited about summer reading.
Avoid the summer slide by creating engaging summer assignments for your students. Join this edWebinar to learn how technology can enhance your summer reading program.
In this session, facilitators will highlight strategies to engage school-aged learners with summer reading. This webinar will benefit librarians.
