GBLC Event: Developing Identity, Empathy, & Community Through Daily Picture Book Read Alouds 

Presented by JILLIAN HEISE: Library Media Educator, Kenosha Unified School District; WSRA Children’s Literature Committee Chair; Creator of #classroombookaday; @heisereads

Location: West De Pere High School
Presentation: #classroombookaday was started by Jillian Heise during the 2014-2015 school year, inspired by Donalyn Miller's  #bookaday challenge. With a goal to read aloud a picture book every day of the school year for a #bookaday with her 7th & 8th grade students, 180 complete texts were shared that grew classroom community and reading engagement. Five years later, thousands of educators across the country are utilizing a #classroombookaday goal to positively affect student learning in their schools, classrooms, and libraries. Join in by learning more below & commit to taking the challenge this school year!

GBLC Event: Using Digital Tools within the Workshop Model

Presented by TARA KEMPEM and JENNIFER WATHKE

Location: TBD

Presentation: Discover how one elementary school literacy coach and librarian/technology coach worked together to create purposeful and authentic integration of literacy and digital learning. K-5 teachers have found that with the help of digital tools, they can increase student/teacher efficiency and enhance literacy skills. Examples include how teachers/students use technology to formatively assess & set goals, log reading, record and strengthen book club discussions, plus so much more! Empower students to have voice and choice while reading and writing, all while including parents in the process!

The GBLC leadership team is here to serve and collaborate with you regarding literacy! Please continue to share ways that we could improve, if you’d like to get more involved on a larger literacy scale, and if there are speakers that could help to enrich all of our learning collectively. We’ve been honored to have been your leadership team for the year.

Sincerely,

Greater Bayland Literacy Council Executive Team

GBLC service project

GBLC is pleased to be partnering with Eye Heart World and the Rose Home for our community service project this year. Eye Heart World and The Rose Home work to support and stop human trafficking. Survivors of sex trafficking experience unspeakable trauma. As a result, they require a highly specialized level of care that's rooted in best and promising practices. The Rose home, based in Green Bay, is a residential aftercare program that serves survivors ages 18-25 through a holistic, strength-based approach. Rose Home is in need of journals, pencils, pens, colored pencils and highlighters. These will be used as part of the therapy those who live at Rose Home receive. Please bring donations to our meetings.
