Below I am including registration information about the TASL Library and Literacy Forum. Preparing for this is what has been occupying my time:
Libraries and Literacy Forum
Collaboration + Communication = Success
sponsored by the Tennessee Association of School Librarians
June 16 - 17, 2006
Nashville Public Library
Dr. Steven L. Layne, keynote speaker*
“Literacy Lessons for a Lifetime”
Literacy stakeholders will gather to address the greater picture of literacy in Tennessee and the
role libraries play. Participants will create an integrated plan for accelerating student and community success in literacy and student achievements. This forum will incorporate panels, keynote speakers, and active work sessions to focus upon four major areas:
* Natural Allies in Literacy Education
* Literature Across the Curriculum
* Advocacy 101 - Building a Community of Support and Communication
* Creating a Collaborative Environment with Librarians as Teachers.
*Dr. Layne is a respected literacy consultant, motivational keynote speaker, and featured author
who works with large numbers of educators and children during school visits and at conferences
held throughout the world. His work has been recognized with awards for outstanding
contributions to the fields of educational research, teaching, and writing. An assortment of Dr.
Layne’s growing collection of books will be available for signing at lunch on Friday including:
This Side of Paradise, The Teachers’ Night Before Christmas, Life’s Literacy Lessons, Verses for Dad’s Heart, Verses for Mom’s Heart, T is for Teachers: A School Alphabet, and Mergers.
