This past November I had the opportunity to push my “ban the blank page” issue further by speaking on the topic of comics in the library. I feel very strongly that creative approaches to literacy work and this presentation provides examples of student success and hopes to build a strong case for considering comic story telling a tool for every teacher’s toolbox.
In November, I was honored to not only present on the topic of modern storytelling, but to also receive the Jean E. Harris Progressive Library Award. It was so special to be recognized for the work done at the Clinton Elementary School Library. One of the library world’s great champions, Dr. Joyce Valenza, featured my acceptance speech on her School Library Journal blog, NeverEnding Search.
November 30th I will be speaking at the New Jersey Association of School Librarian’s Conference in Long Branch, NJ. The topic will be teaching, learning, and game design and my co-presenter is Dr. Christopher Shamburg of the New Jersey City University.
