Re-engaging Children and Youth Through the Boundlessness of Summer Literacy

How can we move beyond seeing reading and writing as remote, daily “activities?” How do we create invitations for children and youth to discover themselves and their world through literature and literacy experiences? Join Alan Flurkey, Ph.D., Literacy Studies Faculty and Chair of Specialized Programs in Education, Michele Marx, Director of the Reading/Writing Learning Clinic, and Literacy Supervisors Michelle Smithers, Christine Cirella, and Matthew Smithers as they discuss how parents can nurture rich, rewarding, and engaging literacy experiences with their child(ren) in the summer months.
