Limited Capacity seats available

We live in a world saturated with multi-modal text forms. The recent technological revolutions in video recording, editing, and distribution have signaled the greatest evolution in literacy in 500 years. And yet we are not totally conversant with the media forms of the day. So we must ask ourselves: Are we as literate as the world demands?

In this presentation Literacy Coach Tara Lee Ronzetti and English As an Additional Language Specialist, Jason Stevens will share how one fourth grade transformed the traditional research paper into a multi-sensory and multi-modal presentation: documentary video.
Participants will watch our story from start to finish and have the opportunity to learn from our mistakes. We will share the teaching points that created the core of the unit, the pace, and surprises we ran into along the way. Teachers will practice some of the skills their students will learn in a unit like this.
