    Description: By the time kids reach middle grades, is it too late for literacy intervention or can unique programs motivate students and help set them on a path for lifelong literacy? In this informative presentation, a literacy specialist will share strategies and programs you can apply now, using reading as a social activity. You’ll learn new ways to get kids talking and sharing books, and how to make those types of activities engaging, motivating, and authentic.

    Teachers and librarians will learn:

    *Ways to encourage reading and literacy on an everyday basis.
    *Interesting approaches that engage students, including summer reading programs and partnerships with other educators and organizations.
    *How to take advantage of the social aspects of reading to increase engagement and motivation.
