I will be attending the NCTE Annual Convention next week.
And, I will be on a panel about blogging and the kidlitosphere. Also on the panel: Mary Lee from A Year of Reading, Jen Robinson from Jen Robinson's Book Page, and Susan T. from Chicken Spaghetti.
Session: I.12 - 1:15 pm to 2:30 pm 11/17/2007
Room: Javits Convention Center
Topic: Multi-modal Literacy
Level(s): Elementary (K-5)
Title: WELCOME TO THE KIDLITOSPHERE: READING, REVIEWING, AND BLOGGING ABOUT CHILDREN'S LITERATURE Children's literature blogs are a fabulous digital resource for all who are interested in children's books. In this session, four bloggers will share how blogs and blogging enhance their work with children and their knowledge of children's literature. There will be time for questions, and handouts with web links and booklists will be provided.
I have never been to NCTE before, so I'm excited! And, all my prep has been for the panel presentation; I haven't glanced at anything else going on at the Convention. So, what do you recommend I do? Any suggestions?
And let me know if you'll be there!
