This month we will be featuring content to explore the question, “How do we create cultures of learning that embrace and provide opportunities for exploring a wide range of literacies in the 21st century?”
“As my students uncover their literate practices, I strike teacher gold: I understand my students more deeply, and can call on so many resources in our academic work.”
Inspired by the work of Katherine and Randy Bomer, Deborah Kelt learned to embrace, as a teacher and parent, the wide range of literacies in today’s world. Along with her students, this journey became about “uncovering literacies” and shifting thinking to and instead of or.
This Heinemann Digital Library article will challenge you to “crack open” your definition of literacy and push you to inspire your students to do the same.
