2019 Institute Theme:
Language, Literacy & Learning
Keynote: Dr. Peter Johnston, Professor Emeritus at the University of SUNY & Member of ILA Research Panel

Keynote: Engaged, self-extending, literate communities

Apprenticing students into literacy is easier if we recognize the significance of student engagement and what that requires, treat literacy and learning as social practices, and take seriously the fact that the teacher is not the only source of learning in the classroom. This talk shows what is possible when children learn how to think together as a community and how to capitalize on rather than fight some of children’s natural tendencies.
