Leading a Literacy Culture
Educators can develop a culture of literacy in schools and classrooms that engage students in authentic learning that will make them better readers, writers, thinkers, and problem solvers. When students are engaged in authentic learning activities, explicitly taught and modeled by the teacher, they are carefully reading and rereading with clear purposes, thinking analytically, and evaluating their understanding of texts and ideas orally or in writing.
Teachers leading authentic learning opportunities in the classroom shift student engagement from passive compliance to deep engagement, where students take full ownership of their learning and display high levels of interest and willingness to pursue answers taking risks in their learning.
Join Bonnie Houck and Sandi Novak, authors of the new ASCD bookLiteracy Unleashed: Fostering Excellent Reading Instruction Through Classroom Visits, in an engaging webinar where they will introduce the Literacy Classroom Visit instrument and unpack important “look for” elements that teachers need to establish in their classroom to cultivate student independence. Together you will explore the importance of creating an engaging learning environment, how to organize classroom libraries to motivate readers, and why “walls that teach” can support a rich culture of literacy.
