In Celebration of Readers and Writers: The Infusion of Movement, Merriment, and Joy

“I like coming to school because there is always something to look forward to.” 

                                                                 ~ Kadi, 5th grader 

Routines are what make a classroom run and what could be better than built-in celebrations that students not only look forward to, but plan for?  A celebratory culture of movement, voice and choice engages us in laughter, pleasure and yes, even healing.  Starting small, affirmations can take just a few minutes and may eventually lead up to larger events such as a more carefully planned Literary Tea inviting family and friends to join in community over books and words. 

In this course we will read and write a variety of diverse short texts including young adult novels in verse, picture books, poetry, flash fiction and more.  We will then bring these readings and writings to life through multi-modal expressions of the visual, linguistic, spatial, aural, and gestural to deepen comprehension, connection, collective creativity, and engagement.  Some of these include: 

  • Book Bash  

  • Soapbox Moment 

  • Speed Date Share 

  • Literary Tea 

  • Friday Festival 

  • LOUD Around the Room  

  • Poetry Slam  

  • Tailgating 

  • Genre Gala  

  • Open Mic  

“The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it’s to create a culture where everyone can have ideas and feel they’re valued." Sir Ken Robinson 

*This course will run 4 days the week of July 4th and then meet again for one day later in the summer to share final celebrations together virtually.

In Pursuit of Meaning: Comprehension as a Catalyst for Learning and Action

The events of the last two years have changed school forever, making it hard to find inspiration for instructional decision-making in a profession we can barely recognize. We need time in community with other educators to rethink and reprioritize our approaches to literacy. Without a doubt, one of these priorities needs to be comprehension, a pursuit of understanding and meaning-making. There is power in the ability to make sense of texts and put our comprehension to use, yet our societal reliance on testing, our “testocracy” (Guinier) has hindered this opportunity for too long. 

This course will be a time to collectively expand our tools, diversify practices that elicit comprehension, and design better learning experiences for children. This course will re-engage you personally, professionally, and intellectually as we explore meaning-making, how it helps us participate in our world, and how this translates to the classroom. 

  • Co-construct fresh and inclusive definitions of text and reading  

  • Explore ways to enhance and assess comprehension through multiple modalities 

  • Experience the process of meaning-making as joyful discovery 

  • Discuss the roles of metacognition, skills, and strategies to more clearly see their power— as well as their limitations—when making meaning  

  • Embrace comprehension as not the ultimate goal, but as a catalyst for learning, transfer, and action

Stories From the Kitchen: Carving Unique Spaces For Student Voice, Choice, and Agency with Nawal Qarooni Casiano

Nawal is excited to teach a rich, multimodal summer course titled Stories from the Kitchen: Carving Unique Spaces for Student Voice, Choice, and Agency this summer.

Together as an educator community, we will explore all the ways families can build literacy skills with their everyday behaviors in meal making, passing down family recipes, and sharing of stories about their days at the kitchen table. We will cull and grapple with a variety of mentor texts for work around culturally nourishing stories that are multimodal, in exploration of poetry, passages from novels, picture books and song. Together we will honor multicultural backgrounds via text and composition that includes translanguaging, with hybrid genre texts like picture books about food that elucidates recipes and background on the communities of origin. 

Throughout the process, educators will have the chance to dig into recent scholarship about indigenous education and ways of knowing, in addition to culturally relevant pedagogy that serves our students in engagement by consistently weaving pillars of choice, voice and agency throughout daily instruction and the fabric of our classrooms. Stories from the kitchen also exalts traditions of oral storytelling (think: podcasts and recordings!), propelling us into capstone projects that will be practical for immediate use in the classroom, while nourishing the rich diversity of the students in our care. Stories from the kitchen will nourish us as an educator community, too.

Reimagining Revision: Fostering a Writer's Mindset in our Students

Do you groan when you hear your writing students utter the words, “I like it the way it is” about their drafts? We all want our students to embrace revision, but perhaps it should be no surprise, this revision resistance. Revision is messy, challenging, and can feel threatening and frustrating for any writer. So how can we help our students – and ourselves – be more open to it? 

In this course, we will explore the idea of revision not as a single stage in the writing process – a step right after “drafting” and just before “editing” – but as a mindset that’s present through every part of our writing. We will actively cultivate our own mindset stances – including metacognition, perspective-taking, flexible thinking, and risk-taking – as we draft and revise different pieces throughout our week. Chris will share practical approaches teachers can use to make revision engaging, meaningful, and fun for their students, at any level. Participants will develop practices they can weave into their classes’ minilessons and pre-writing, drafting, conferring, and sharing structures. Along the way, we’ll make some manageable but powerful shifts that can foster a writer’s mindset in our students and help them move beyond revision resistance. 

Chris Hall is the author of The Writer’s Mindset and learns everyday about writing and revision alongside his language arts students at Oyster River Middle School in Durham, NH. Over the past twenty years, he has taught in urban, suburban, public, independent, and international schools, where he has helped young writers find authentic purpose, build community, and discover the power of their own words. Chris also served as a Heinemann Fellow, researching innovative writing practices within a cohort of dynamic educators from across the country.

Amplifying Voices, Celebrating Choices: Empowering Student Equity and Change

Pandemic schooling forced us to reconsider many of the “truths'' we held about teaching: when and where learning can happen, that students can only learn from a well-informed classroom teacher, and the notion that the meaning of a novel is fixed and absolute. This break from traditional schooling empowered us to disrupt our curriculum, authentically connect students to each other and their community, and turn their research into art, action, and awareness for social change.  

In this generative course we will identify ways we can take our students’ learning beyond the four walls of our classrooms through slam poetry, disrupting whole-class novels, and promoting student-centered action-research. We will connect with a network of like-minded community members, specifically NH’s Racial Unity Team, and their Arts in Action project. Join us as we navigate how to amplify voices in our curriculum, encourage students to dive deep into real world issues, and share their own lived experiences.   

 

Dennis Magliozzi and Kristina Peterson have been teaching English at Exeter High School since 2008. Kristina has a Masters in teaching from George Fox University and Dennis has an MFA in poetry and is currently enrolled in the Philosophy of Education program at UNH. They co-teach in UNH’s education department and the Writer’s Academy. They are co-founders of Bookshelf Diversity, a statewide grant project designed to get diverse books into the hands of NH students, and are Ambassadors for NH’s Racial Unity Team’s Art in Action project.

Place, Writing, and Multimodality: Playing and Learning in the Places Around Us

Bethany Silva

Imagine your favorite place in the world. What gives this place its magic? Perhaps it’s rural - a rocky beach on the coast of Maine or a mountain you climb each year. Perhaps it’s urban - a city park surrounded by towering skyscrapers or a historical site whose cobblestones transport you back in time. The local places we inhabit impact our understanding of the world and ourselves. Harnessing the power of place within the classroom inspires our students by connecting their learning to real, tangible, purposeful experiences. 

In this course, we will explore public spaces as fuel for our writing, critically examining the stories that define places and the stories that get buried. We will engage with multimodal writing and making as we consider the ways places, too, are texts. We will investigate how other educators have engaged with place-based writing, and we will read, write, and make our own place-centered texts. As we get outside and write, we will be practicing and implementing activities and techniques that you will be able to implement in your own classroom. 

Bethany Silva has spent the past 20 years writing inside and outside with children, young adults, and educators. As a Philadelphia Writing Project Teacher Consultant, she helped establish the National Writing Project/National Park Service partnership, where she ran summer writing camps at Independence National Historical Park and serves with a nationwide group of educators, writers, and National Park Rangers that hosts #WriteOut, a yearly online event where educators, students, and the public explore national parks and other public spaces to connect and learn through place-based writing and sharing.  Dr. Silva is a Research Assistant Professor of Education and the Community Literacy Center Director at the University of New Hampshire. She has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Writing Unbound: Finding a Place for Fiction

While the reading of fiction is at the absolute center of the English/Language Arts, the writing of fiction usually fades out in middle school—if it lasts that long. Yet the desire to write fiction-- to create imagined worlds, characters, and conflicts--doesn’t die. In this short course, we will explore ways to open the door to fiction writing. We will try our hand at short fiction; we will interview teachers who bring fiction (even novel writing) into the classroom; and we’ll talk with students who are avid fiction writers. We’ll even show how fiction writing can support literary analysis.  

Tom Newkirk is a Professor of English, Emeritus at the University of New Hampshire.
