Featured Presenter: Kristin Ziemke

For elementary aged learners, interacting with print, media, digital and each other IS literacy. Young learners natural curiosity invites an opportunity to build awareness for media messages, comprehend how information is shared and create their own messages to tell their story. In this session, we learn how to weave ongoing media literacy education into our daily conversations, read alouds, and routines in order to teach kids to read the world.
