This session focuses on how teachers can draw on activities occurring outside of the school day as a means of reinforcing standards-based critical literacy skills--such as reading critically, writing, making work public, and responding critically (and with textual and rhetorical support)--in response to ideas and texts with which an author agrees/disagrees.
  • Attendees will draw on multiple sources to examine a current media event that involves civic participation, looking at varied perspectives and how those are represented in several social media spaces. 
  • Attendees will review and briefly discuss potential literacy assignments they could use with students that allow them to author a perspective on social media. 
  • Attendees will share related experiences in small groups, particularly as they involved students voicing an opinion through social media outlets.
