Designing Effective Library Experiences for African-American Male Youth Program Las Vegas Convention Center
S231
Description :

The goal of this session is to enable school librarians to create supportive environments and meaningful experiences that enhance literacy achievement and life outcomes of African-American male youth. Supporting lifelong learning is a key component of the mission of school libraries. The national crisis of literacy achievement of African-American males is an extension of this mission, and one we believe the school library community must embrace. Research on best practice in the literacy instruction of Black male youth, including effective pedagogy, text selection, and community empowerment, must be part of the professional repertoire of school library professionals.

This session will present an intersection of Every Child Ready to Read 2nd edition and USDA guidelines for eating and introducing healthy habits. Includes an overview of early literacy components including information about cognitive development, the five practices (sing, talk, read, write, play), and making meals matter through new songs and literacy activities for your storytime programs.
