    1. effective literacy skills

      Effective literacy skills have changed a great deal, as hickstro and I note here, but they also continue to do so each day. Just look at the various challenges associated with inaccurate information shared via social media or through news sources. It seems that this issue is continually raised in current conversation. How can we best equip our students to navigate information for accuracy and comprehension?

      Part of my job as an English educator is to help students make sense of content they read and write in their world. Analysis of texts and obtaining accurate information is an important part of the research process for students. My current students noted that they find this to be important and they want to get better at it to be informed about their world.
