LITERACY FOR NOW AND TOMORROW

Author: Rebecca L. Zullo, M.Ed. & Kim Tucker, M.Ed.

 


This course will be a tremendous asset for educators in all content areas - as learning and achieving in the digital age has brought many significant challenges to modern classrooms. The demands of literacy have expanded to include skills beyond
reading and writing. With the pervasive use of technology, both in and out of school, the
WAY that students read, write, communicate, and participate in society has changed.
The tools that are used for teaching, learning, researching, communicating, and
assessing students continue to evolve. In this standards-based course, we will introduce
and explore K-12 literacy resources, in traditional and/or digital formats, and learn
practical classroom-based strategies. Be sure to bring your digital device (laptop, tablet,
and/or smartphone).


A few things the participants will learn:
● How literacy demands have evolved over the years.
● The characteristics effective reading and writing programs.
● How content-area teachers can boost the reading comprehension and writing
skills of their students.
● Strategies to enhance vocabulary building and acquisition.
● Strategies for student research and collaboration using digital tools.
● Ways in which instruction can be adapted and modified to help students meet the
standards using the tools that are currently available.
● How to help students locate and cite evidence in their reading, writing, and
assessments.
● How to find and use many free digital resources that will enhance the literacy
experiences of your students.
● Practical classroom-based strategies using the resources you have.
