Graduate Speaker Series: Learning To Be Literate
Register for "Learning To Be Literate: More Than a Single Story." As part of Stonehill's Graduate & Professional Studies Speaker Series, author and literacy expert Patricia Paugh, Ph.D., will discuss literacy education and what leads to literate citizens being prepared to contribute to the social good.
*Note: Registration for this event is required to attend.
What does it look like to support teachers as professionals and improve families' knowledge about the literacy learning of children? Teaching our youngest children to read and write is a complex process.
This talk challenges the notion that there is one simple solution to effective reading instruction. Patricia Paugh, Ph.D., will invite the audience to consider an expanded view of literacy education. This emerges from a full investigation of reading scholarship that spans dimensions: learning codes, reading with purpose, developing confidence and competence, and engaging with texts as critical readers and writers. Patricia will argue that, in the world of schooling, an intersection of instruction that honors the linguistic and cultural knowing of children and the science(s) of reading is what leads to literate citizens being prepared to contribute to the social good. PDPs available! Register today.
