Literacy Connection: Opportunities that Matter

Saturday I had the opportunity to spend time with Kristin Ziemke at Literacy Connection.  It was a packed house as Kristin pushed us to open our minds to new possibilities.  I always love the conversations that transpire as we think together about ways to grow the literacy opportunities for learners.

My Takeaways:
  1. Kids need to be doing real work that matters.  
  2. Whatever the text (video, picture book, image, news article, etc.), our conversation should always be focused on the thinking.  
  3. As teachers, we need to be intentional about developing the strategies needed to be a digital reader or writer.  

Resources Shared:  

Thanks, Kristin and Literacy Connection, I'm looking forward to our next conversation in April.
