With 28% of adults reporting that they have not read a book in the last 12 months, we are facing a mounting reading crisis. So what can we, as the educators who teach this future generation of readers, do to create more engaging reading experiences? In this session, based on the book Passionate Readers: The Art of Reaching and Engaging Every Child, 7th-grade teacher Pernille Ripp will help you re-discover the keys of creating a community of readers, no matter the constricts facing your time. Focusing on teacher reading identity, classroom environment and library, as well as student reading identity, this is a session sure to inspire. From re-thinking major literacy decisions to all of the small decisions we make daily; this is meant to be a practical session that will offer up ideas to be implemented the very next day.
Pernille Ripp is a highly sought after keynote speaker on the state, national, and international level. She was born and raised in Denmark and is currently a practicing middle school teacher in Wisconsin. Pernille speaks on topics such as passionate literacy communities, personalized learning, student engagement and ownership, meaningful connected literacy, and global collaboration through technology infusion.
