Description

Literacy and Language - Knowing Learners, Knowing Texts, Knowing Practice

Come join us for two full days of learning designed with real classrooms, engagement, and joy in mind!

(Sponsored by Okapi Educational Publishing and San Diego County Office of Education)

Developing literate learners means developing literacy and language. It means classrooms filled with students who read, think, talk, and write together as they immerse in a process of making and conveying meaning. This two-day symposium offers educators from around the country an opportunity to think together as they construct, refine, and extend their own professional understandings of literacy and language learning.

Developing classrooms alive with literacy and language invites all voices and perspectives to the conversation as we value and nurture the literate learners we want in our society.

As educators work with colleagues and other literacy leaders, they will explore ideas such as:

  • What becomes possible when we create and nurture environments where learners think and talk purposefully about books?
  • What is the literacy work that matters for literate learners and what roles do balanced reading and writing approaches play in this learning?
  • How does instruction focused on meaning align with phonics and spelling instruction in a balanced literacy classroom?
  • How does formative assessment support quality literacy instruction in a time of high-stakes testing and standards?
  • How does this work come together in Spanish-speaking classrooms, and in biliteracy and dual language classrooms?
  • How can literacy leaders support classroom teachers to make the most of a learning environment?
