Creating an Engaging Reading Culture

Imagine a classroom where all children participate in a vibrant reading culture that values all readers and all reading?

How can we create such a classroom while still meeting standards-based instructional goals?

In this workshop, literacy leader Donalyn Miller shares research-proven instructional moves that increase children’s reading ability and motivation, rituals and routines like book talking and read alouds, and management tools for readers’ notebooks and conferring that meet both academic and personal reading goals.

Reading the World

Promoting Awareness, Inclusivity, and Empathy

We are not just teaching the people our children are today; we are teaching global citizens. Through reading we can expand children’s understanding of the world and themselves.
In this new workshop Donalyn Miller frames the historical background of diverse children’s literature, shares current and classic titles that celebrate our global family, and provides practical strategies and resources for increasing children’s awareness and empathy for others through standard-based reading and writing workshop lessons.
