Location: Visser Hall Room 118
Two Days of Exploring Creation and Use of Text Sets with Children's and Young Adult Authors
Dive in! The 2014 Kansas Summer Institute for School Librarians is an opportunity to take a summer “plunge” into teaching P-12 students to explore a topic using a variety of sources. Learn to develop resources sets, a collection of sources from different genre, media, and levels of reading difficulty selected for readers with a range of experiences, interests, and abilities. High priority will be on learning concepts, accessing available materials, and seeing examples by experienced school librarians and reading teachers of how to move away from instruction that focuses on a single, isolated text. The event will feature authors - - both days. Don’t miss Steven Sheinkin and Deborah Hopkinson.
