Literacy Innovators Forum, Beautiful Spaces for Lifelong Literacy Learning: Profound Home/School Connections for All Our Literacy Learners
Pam Allyn will share powerful new strategies for bringing literacy to all our learners preK-grade12, in their journeys from home to school and back again. She will share why the literacy work at home and school must be accomplished with love, care, and purpose, helping our learners see that they have the power of stories within them. She will share best practices, stirring literature, and fresh ways of looking at how children learn, in times of great change. She will share new ways to reach and support families to feel their own profound strengths and roles in this work of raising readers, writers, and storytellers. JoEllen will discuss the ways in which we can use the read aloud to blur the lines between lessons in reading, writing, and life. When we use powerful picture books and their mentor authors as co-teachers, we can explore opportunities to grow readers’ skills, opening their minds and hearts. Carefully chosen literature can also impact our relationships and empower us to challenge ideas or accept new realities, pushing us to grow—page by page, and story by story.
