Presentation Title: “Promise into Practice: What it Now Means to Teach Adolescent Readers”
Description: It is a daunting and exciting time to teach English – especially as we consider the “shifts” in how we define literacy, and the toolset for our work as readers and writers continually expands. This session investigates one teacher’s work in studying her practice and students’ learning when she worked to bridge new literacies into “traditional” classroom practice.

    Ms. Kajder, I really enjoyed this presentation! As an English ed student who will be student teaching in fall 2009, I hope to be a teacher that incorporates the Internet with literature. I found your exhortation of teaching new concepts of literacy exciting and invigorating! Thanks for the encouragement to try new things with technology in English!

  3. Great presentation! As a former ELA teacher who is now a Technology Integration Specialist, I appreciated the way your primary focus was on literacy, and the technology to support the curriculum was a supporting feature. I plan to share this with my ELA teachers!
