Passionate Readers – The Art of Reaching and Engaging Every Child

presented by Pernille Ripp

With 26% of adults reporting that they have not read a book in the last 12 months, we are facing a mounting reading crisis.  So what can we, as the educators who teach this future generation of readers, do to create more engaging reading experiences?  In this session, based on the book Passionate Readers: The Art of Reaching and Engaging Every Child, educator Pernille Ripp will help you re-discover the keys of creating a community of readers, no matter the constricts facing your time.  Focusing on teacher reading identity, classroom environment and library, as well as a commonsense approach to bolstering student reading identity, this is a session sure to create conditions for more reading joy and deeper engagement with reading. From re-thinking major literacy decisions to all of the small decisions we make daily; this is meant to be a practical session that will offer up ideas to be implemented the very next day.

This is the second in the series of live webinars for the SW Zone.
Wisconsin educators may register and join the South Kettle Moraine Reading Council, Muirland Literacy Council, the Hidden Valley Reading Council, or the Madison Area Reading Council at no cost.
Educators from outside the state of Wisconsin may register and attend for $10.
