For many years, Dr. Judith Langer has been studying how readers
interact with texts and what the implications for teaching are,
so that we can help students become more fully literate. Through
the eyes of English and language arts educators, teacher educators,
researchers, and writers, viewers have the unique opportunity
to step back from their professional lives and reflect about
their relationships with literature: why they love to read,
what their reading habits are, what they enjoy about reading,
and how stories are woven into the tapestry of their lives.
this first program, the audience gets acquainted with key panelists
who will appear throughout the workshop series. These individuals
share their joy of literature by discussing its value, the power
of story, and how literature permeates their lives and brings
meaning to their world.
