This edWebinar will shed light on how to immerse K-12 learners in engaging literacy experiences to fulfill their potential as readers and writers in the 21st Century. Literacy directly impacts the success of a student throughout their educational career. A direct correlation can be seen between failing an English class and not completing high school. This is why it’s imperative that students get the support they need to improve reading skills and begin to close the achievement gap. The objectives of this edWebinar include:
- Discussion of the principles of how to involve students in authentic activities that connect their lives to historical and current contexts
- Case studies that demonstrate how to use turn-around pedagogical to change the outlooks of even the most resistant readers and writers
- Forward-thinking, customizable approaches to integrate these authentic practices into existing curriculums and programs nationwide
Teachers, administrators, and other educators can deepen their knowledge of how to lead youth toward their academic potential and succeed at meeting grade-level standards through engaging literacy experiences. The edWebinar will be of particular benefit to elementary through high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
