As a part of the literacy professional community, as a school librarian, I received an invitation through my school district to join other literacy professionals as a participant in Online Course Work targeting the theme Literacy Leads the Way.
The overall objective is for literacy professionals to increase their literacy building expertise so as to provide appropriate activities to build reading fluency, develop oral language, world knowledge; and, to build listening/reading comprehension as well as to ensure wide exposure to literature lending supportive ideas for building inner dialogue for reading comprehending and written composition.
Additionally, I am presently working on a media project with my library book club students. We are in the process of creating a DVD which exhibits the students discussing inclusive of props depicting their favorite books read for the Book Contest held in my district. The slide show will include voiced audio and music. The students are very excited and so am I!
