Cultivating a Community of Readers: Literary Programming Ideas to Cajole, Challenge, and Engage Students

Despite explosions in the electronic reading world, and emphasis on students developing 21st century skills, huge gaps in reading achievement exist among students. School Librarians are positioned to be the literacy leaders in our schools, bringing students to the skill that will sustain all of their education. This lively session will demonstrate how to create a community of readers by engaging and challenging students so that they develop into passionate, independent readers and learners.
