*Fostering Equity and Empowerment Through a Student's Reading Life. Date: Nov. 15, 2019. Time: 9am - 3pm. Location: Brick Twp. PD Center. Presenter: Jackie Frangis, FEA Consultant. Fee: $149.00. In this workshop, participants will gain knowledge of the most current, highly rated, and authentic literature titles and topics in grades K-12. Participants will learn how to: use these texts to engage all learners, support teachers in providing multi-modal formats in reading, motivate reluctant readers, and have a discussion around how providing equity through authentic literature inspires students to create new contexts for learning to take place. Authentic literature honors students' voices and the choices they make in their reading lives. This workshop is based on using the most current and highly rated K-12 literature titles in order to focus on student equity, as well as multi-modal formats in reading, and ways to provide students with voice and choice in their reading.
