Using Google Tools to Create a Culture of Literary Nerds

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It’s crucial for schools to build a culture of reading – to cultivate literary nerds. However, many students balk immediately at the suggestion of reading for class, let alone reading independently. This session will explore how to cultivate an authentic love of reading in students and provide participants with a wide array of technology-based strategies, projects, and activities to get students excitedly reading, talking about, and suggesting books to their peers. Even high school students. Even boys!

Participants will explore projects and activities that encourage students to determine theme, analyze literature, and write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence while also highlighting projects and activities that specifically use GAFE to create and publish student work.
