SEMINAR - BUILDING A CULTURE OF LITERACY IN OUR SCHOOLS
Reading is the fundamental academic skill behind almost all learning in school. It’s almost impossible to progress beyond the basics in most disciplines without the ability to read. From science to math to the arts, so much of the learning we hope for our students to access is transmitted through the written word. So how do we create and sustain a culture of literacy and a love of reading in our schools? We’re joined by literacy coach and Nationally Board Certified Teacher extraordinaire Geneviève DeBose Akinnagbe to hear about her work in building a culture of literacy in and out of her classroom.
