Talking about Audio at the International Reading Association

by

Audio is on the agenda at the International Reading Association, the largest conference of literacy educators in the world.

Brian Fitzgerald and I will be presenting a session at the International Reading Association in Toronto on Thursday, May 17 entitled, “Using Audio Books to Promote Critical Literacy.” We’ll be sharing results from our work with teachers’ use of audiobooks— you’re seeing some examples from this work on this blog.

In addition, Kelli Esteves from Acquinas College will be making a presentation on “Audio-Assisted Reading With Audiobooks” on Wednesday, May 16, where she will provide specific techniques for using audio-assisted reading with audiobooks to improve attitudes and increase fluency for struggling readers.

At the conference on Monday May 14 at 11 am, Renee will offer a book signing for her book, Reading the Media: Media Literacy in High School English (Teachers College Press, 2007) at the TC Booth. She’ll also be on a panel discussion about the new book she co-edited entitled Handbook of Research on Teaching Literacy through the Visual and Communicative Arts on Tuesday, May 15 at 1 p.m. Hope to see you there!

    Go ahead and surprise your household with that mouth-watering sensation. People seem to go through
    two separate periods within their reactions to getting
    herpes.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever
    run into any browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog audience have complained about my website
    not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
