Teachers as Story Catchers In the Studio Classroom – Making Literacy Learning Visible

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you want to jazz up your literacy instruction, and engage your students while reading and writing? This session is for you. We will take the participants on a journey through the Literacy Studio Classroom. We will share processes such as the writing cycle, which includes generating ideas, rehearsing, writing, revising, editing and publishing. We will share a myriad of literacy strategies while using mentor texts such as pattern picture books, visual literacy, narrative and expository strategies. The session will include videos, and techniques to scaffold writing at all levels. As well, we will focus on the reader’s workshop which includes responding to narrative and information texts with both print and online resources as well as how to engage readers in a book club setting. Teachers will be fully equipped with a wide variety of toolbox methods to engage students at all levels.
