Enhancing Literacy Means Aiming For Deep Learning

Cultivating & Integrating Literacy Across the Curriculum por Howard Slepkov

Notas del episodio

Last week, I posted about the banning of books and how I reacted to what happened in the Deep South recently. Since then, an old friend approached me about my thoughts on different approaches to dealing with book banning and what I thought might be done to combat it. I decided, in thinking about it, that we needed to work hard to educate teacher and parents about how reading aloud and reading programs through the years in school had to be focussed on making reading creating change in how students see and understand the world. Only by cultivating deep learning which I explore in this podcast, will children become adults who do not see reading as threatening but as a way to understand better what the world is all about and how to understand and respond to the diversity of humanity in the world.
