PASCD's Achieve the Reach: Making Every Child a Super Reader
Thursday, October 5, 2017
8:00am to 1:15pm
Allegheny Intermediate Unit #3    ::    75 E Waterfront Dr, Homestead, Pa 15120


Description:
What can educational leaders do to create comprehensive literacy learning environments in schools and classrooms that increase student engagement, develop literate identities, and promote academic achievement? This workshop employs a sociocultural framework to explain key reasons why students who want to do well end up failing and it helps leaders and teachers imagine ways to eliminate these causes of failure. Ultimately it offers a socially, culturally, and digitally relevant model of literacy education that draws upon multicultural literature, contemporary events, and youth research in neighborhoods and communities to inspire students as social actors while also developing them as powerful readers, writers, speakers, and users of emergent digital technologies. 

Presenters:
Dr. Ernest Morrell, author of the Scholastic book "Every Child a Super Reader."
Dr. Nicole Bosworth, Director of Literacy for Scholastic Education
