Breakout Session 5.3: Creating a Reading Culture in Every School and Every Classroom
As elementary schools across North Carolina shift instructional practices to align to the Science of Reading body of research, schools must also maintain a joy of reading for students. This session will focus on how a school district prioritized within their strategic plan establishing a reading culture in every school and every classroom. Growing readers through engaging learning experiences which include student choice and voice will work in conjunction with creating academic excellence. Specific strategies will be explored to establish a reading culture within a school community.
