With 24% of adults reporting that they have not read a book in the last 12 months, we are facing a mounting reading crisis.  So what can we, as the educators who teach this future generation of readers, do to create more engaging reading experiences?  In this session, based on the book Passionate Readers: The Art of Reaching and Engaging Every Child, 7th-grade teacher Pernille Ripp will help you re-discover the keys of creating a community of readers, no matter the constricts facing your time.  Focusing on teacher reading identity, classroom environment and library, as well as student reading identity, this is a session sure to inspire. From re-thinking major literacy decisions to all of the small decisions we make daily; this is meant to be a practical session that will offer up ideas to be implemented the very next day.

This workshop is for all those who work with students in grades 3-12.

Since Pernille Ripp was a child growing up in Denmark, she knew she wanted to work with kids. She began her journey in education as a math resource teacher, then transitioned into the classroom as a 4th and 5th grade teacher and has now found her home as a 7th grade English teacher in  Wisconsin. Ripp is also a speaker, author, blogger (pernillesripp.com), mom, and passionate advocate for education. She's an award-winning expert in literacy and technology integration. She is also the founder of The Global Read Aloud that has connected millions of students in more than 85 countries. Her books and blogs are sources of tremendous inspiration and insight for teachers, parents, and educators around the world with her newest book, Passionate Readers - The Art of Reaching and Engaging Every Child, recently released.  She believes in having the courage to change and even break the rules for the good of kids and education. Besides being with her own family, there is no place she would rather be every day than in the classroom, teaching her awesome students.
