We're offering you the closest thing to a dinner party with experts in the field of adolescent literacy. Now...before you think that this is just about teaching reading, let us tell you that this online workshop will bring you into the 21st century regarding all literacy skills - thinking, reading, writing, and listening, as well as current best practices. We'll be using the book entitled "Adolescent Literacy: Turning Promise in Practice", which is an anthology of articles by 30 of the leading authors and researchers in the field of literacy. The book is not just a litany of theory, but a treasure trove of practical ideas that can be used in all content classrooms. Using the Online Classroom format, you will read and respond with colleagues about articles in the text. Finally, you will have a project in which you will implement concepts from the book into classroom plans for next fall.
