Making Spaces for Literacy: Intersections of Innovations, Personalized Learning and Choice in a Literacy Classroom

Personalized learning. Innovator’s Mindset. Voice and Choice. Maker Spaces. Genius Hour. Flexible Seating. These are more than buzz-words - they are a way to think about a literacy classroom. Join OWP in this two-day workshop to read professional literature, practice strategies and share inquiry into making spaces for literacy. We’ll dig into the thinking around current conversations and their intersections with literacy instruction and take home concrete ways to strengthen our foundations and build learning spaces for students.
