Moving Readers and Writers from Compliance to Engagement


Compliant reading and writing is not the same thing as engaged reading and writing. Students are asked to do too much of the former, and as a result, they are not given enough opportunity to generate their own interests and thinking. Because of this imbalance in their reading and writing diets, many students have lost their agency and have slipped into victimhood. In this workshop, Kelly will discuss critical decisions and moves teachers can make to ensure more authentic engagement in our young readers and writers.
