"Transliteracy: An Unintentional Film Festival"
What are the strategies classroom teachers and teacher librarians must teach to ensure learners at all levels grow as literate/transliterate citizens? From a better understanding of intellectual property to best tools for telling stories and communicating new knowledge, Joyce counts them down and reveals granular strategies for delivering instruction, using illustrations from classic film.
Dr. Valenza will also lead us in a special two hour unconference session where we will share, learn, exchange ideas, solve problems, and build community and capacity. A flexible agenda will allowall voices to lead conversations around issues and innovative ideas for effective practice. Plan to lead or suggest a conversation, participate in Stink/Rocks debates and be prepared to grab the mic as a participant in our culminating (and archived) Smackdown of best learning tools and strategies.
