Creative Literacy

Fostering a love of reading is a major stepping stone on the road to successful literacy.

This session explores ways of

  • engaging students of any age using picture books
  • using sophisticated picture books as a starting point for “just-in-time” teaching
  • developing a “touchstone text” to anchor an inquiry into the literacy curriculum
  • encouraging a wider range of creative responses to literature
  • promoting cross-curricular links through creative literacy teaching
