Keynote Speaker: Radical Power of Books - Dhonielle Clayton
The Radical Power of Books centers on the importance of high quality, culturally-responsive reading culture in schools and libraries, and how to choose books that will help every child fall in love with reading. It will touch on the following topics: What makes a high-quality book? How can you engage reluctant readers? Why does it matter so much that kids fall for books? What are the biggest barriers to making this possible for every student? How can adults model great reading behavior? What should we all be reading right now? When did you become a reader? Is there a teacher who played a particularly significant role in your life?
