Cultivating Readers for Life
August 22 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm
A Dinner Presentation and Conversation with Teacher & Author, Pernille Ripp
The message is clear among literacy communities: we want to help our students become readers for life, we want them to love reading, but we need more ideas. We believe in choice and inclusive access, yet we are not sure how to start or how to continue to create thriving reading communities. Focusing on creating authentic conversations, building reading community, and establishing positive reading identity, this session is meant for the educator looking for practical ideas in their quest to help students become passionate readers.
