Description
As the new BC curriculum promotes a more inquiry-based approach to learning, the need to develop diverse digital literacies becomes even more crucial. But how can we keep up when new apps and programs keep popping up? In this PowerPoint used as part of his 2017 PSA Superconference keynote presentation, Ron Darvin talks about getting past an app-centred paradigm and to go back to what is at the core of digital literacy so that we can teach our students to be truly literate in the 21st century.

Description
Bullets, Blood and Stones: the journey of a child soldier, brings students face to face with the child soldier situation that occurred in Uganda when infamous warlord, Joseph Kony, abducted 60,000 children and forced them to join his Lord’s Resistance Army. Teachers who have used this book in their classrooms note that student interest is high as the story is fast paced and the characters are very relatable. Real life events in the book provide a perfect teaching opportunity to contrast the lives of children in other parts of the world and challenge the way in which students view themselves and their place in society. Although events in the story are horrifying, there are moments of warmth and humour that are uplifting and give hope to the human condition. Teaching resources, including chapter by chapter discussion questions, activities, and a power point presentation, are available on the resource page of White’s website.

Description
Drawing on leading educational researchers some schools are reconsidering their delivery modes for pull-out and in-class intervention models for at-risk readers. In an interactive manner the presenter will model and describe how a daily, strategically-based reading intervention can make a positive difference with vulnerable students. Participants will be provided with opportunities to practice and experience how to teach in a manner that facilitates strategic activity. The ideas presented will be applicable to both learning support and regular classroom teachers. This presentation will answer the question “What is possible for students experiencing difficulties in reading?” as of September 27, 2011 to late June 2017, 144 students who were below grade level in reading reached the average band of instruction.
