Building Connections: Linking Literacy and Life Skills Learning
We know books are powerful tools for teaching complex topics, especially when carefully curated to build connections for the reader. We also know teachers need easy-to-implement and meaningful literacy activities to teach important life skills, such as self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. In this webinar, we will explore three 15–20-minute literacy activities that seamlessly integrate these skills, taking complex concepts and making them actionable.
In this session, participants will:
- Explore three easy-to-implement, teacher-led literacy activities that support essential life skills learning.
- Investigate the partnership of carefully curated text and literacy activities to teach essential topics and build meaningful connections to the text.
- Discover opportunities to promote critical and creative thinking through research-based reading and writing activities.
