In order for our students to feel valued in our classrooms they must be represented in the books we share with them. Whether it is the characters on the pages of our read alouds, the families, cultures, and settings represented in our novels, or the author's experiences that inspire the picture books we share, our students need to feel represented and heard. Our mentor texts can be more than simply books we use to teach writing strategies and skills. These texts can also be springboards of ways to discuss the issues of our time with the students who sit before us, looking for ways to feel included and important. Join Sarah Cordova, Director of Literacy Matters, as she shares new selections to build a stronger classroom community. Eligible for 3 hours CTLE credit. Can use 1/2 Consortium seat. If district pays, district approval must be confirmed prior to start of session.

Audience: 7-12 Social Studies Teachers and Supervisors. How can social studies teachers safely discuss "controversial” topics with their students in a highly polarized society? Rather than introducing viewpoints that might be deemed biased, teachers can use picture books and short texts as the catalyst for student-generated discussions and inquiry around current social issues. For students to be engaged citizens they must have opportunities to connect content to contemporary life. At a time when issues can be polarizing, social studies educators must support their students with methods that allow discussions to originate organically and develop without fear of alienating student perspective and voice. Join Jim Mendonis, Director of Social Studies and 21st Learning in East Meadow Schools, and Sarah Cordova, Director of Literacy Matters, as they share methods and short texts/pictures books to begin this vital work.

How do we help cultivate a love of writing within our youngest writers? When our students do not yet know their letters, sounds, or the basics of language, how do they communicate meaning? Starting the school year with an illustration study is a perfect way to build a foundation for strong writing. This two part workshop will introduce participants to the Next Generation Writing and Language Standards and demonstrate the power of choosing the right mentor texts for an Illustration Study. Join Sarah Cordova, Director of Literacy Matters, to learn ways that students can show meaning in their writing through easy to use strategies and skills.
