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!
