21st-Century Literacy Workshop at NCTE, “Melding Home and School Literacies”

November 17, 2012

What: “You call that literacy? Melding home and school literacies to strengthen students’ writing and cultural awareness” workshop at National Council of Teachers of English annual convention
Who: Dr. Debra Harwood and Dr. Kari-Lynn Winters, of Brock University (St. Catherines, ON), and Lori Sherritt-Fleming and Anastasia Hendry (Vancouver, BC)
When: Saturday November 17, 2012, 8:00am
Where: Vista Ballroom Room 208, Level Two, MGM Grand Convention Center, Las Vegas

A child’s home life is intrinsically connected to their authorship and to their social worlds. In this interactive and hands-on workshop, four educators/literacy scholars/authors team up to demonstrate how multimodal out-of-school literacies have the potential to shape and enhance in-school writing programs. Specific genres of writing will be highlighted, including: poetry, recounts, narratives, and reports.
