Just a quick note to let you know I will be presenting at the Colorado Teen Literature Conference this Saturday. (Yes, I am missing AERA this year.)
I believe the conference registration is already full. However, if you’re going, here’s a sneak peek of my presentation:
Teen Literature as Empowerment: Learning from Participatory Culture and Critical Literacy
This workshop explores the opportunities and challenges that libraries face in an era of participatory culture. Teen literature is a powerful space for critical learning and this session will look at how to adapt to what new teen literature can teach. Through collaboration, participants will build a framework of participatory learning and culture to help libraries and librarians conceptualize multiple, diverse points of access to meaningful literacy experiences.
I hope to see you there!
