Just Let Them Read! Creating Conditions For Real Reading, Writing, and Talking in the Classroom.
To grow students who are literate, critical thinkers, and scholars, we need to create conditions where they are engaged in authentic reading, writing, and collaborating all day, every day. Neuroscience shows the most clear way to rewire our brains is to read and write more. This session will provide both the research for why we need to carve more time into our students’ school day for authentic literacy while also pointing you in the direction of how to do this while meeting all the other demands for yours and your students time each class period.
