In this edWebinar, viewers learn practical ways to involve multiple stakeholders in developing a productive and celebratory reading culture in schools and classrooms. The session begins with an overview of why it is important for educators to embrace the opportunities that establish an authentic reading culture and routine. It includes references and connections to the relationship between reading volume and achievement and future-ready skills. Strategies and practices are shared to invite students to sustain engagement in reading, participate in a reading community, and be reflective about their own reading identities, habits, and behaviors.

This edWebinar emphasizes designing relevant and joyful reading experiences that position students to be leaders of their own learning. Authentic examples from classrooms and schools are shown throughout to contextualize the ideas that are shared. Viewers leave with resources to bring back to their schools and classrooms to start implementing their learning right away. Learning outcomes include:

  • Learn practical ways to cultivate a culture of reading in schools and classrooms
  • Gain plans for how various stakeholders (students, teachers, administrators, caregivers, and community members) can contribute to a child’s reading life
  • Reflect on how celebrating reading as a social experience can build community and joy in schools and classrooms

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers and instructional coaches.
