The Literacies for All Summer Institute is a forum in which teachers and learners in this increasingly complex world can share their creative work. In whole language classrooms, curriculum builds from the experiences, inquiries, challenges, and problems in learners’ daily lives. Learners develop as readers and writers as they address important issues, solve problems, and explore themes that cross subject-area boundaries. Our small conference provides opportunities for in-depth discussions, the sharing of rough-draft thinking around critical issues, and first-hand, multimodal learning experiences.
The Literacies for All Summer Institute is a peer-reviewed conference. All proposals addressing whole language themes are considered.
