Moving Literacy Outdoors with Valerie Bang-Jensen

We will explore five broad approaches to literacy that you can move outdoors: Literacy to Go, Word Gardens, StoryWalks, Interpretive Signage, and Literacy Trails. Find first steps, varied entry points, logistics, literacy connections, and ways that you can level up once you’re ready.

Participants receive a copy of Valerie’s newest book, Literacy Moves Outdoors: Learning Approaches for Any Environment, published by Heinemann, 2023


This is a virtual event, live with the author. We hope you will join us for an inspiring conversation!
