Teen literacy has never been more important. Current research on reading comprehension suggests that U.S. students perform increasingly poorly in comparison to students from other countries. Libraries can help to close the gap by promoting reading using new insight, information, and energy. Through workshop presentations and a panel discussion two well-known teen literacy specialists will foster understanding of the latest research in adolescent development as a key to unlocking reading behavior. From Reaching Reluctant and Underserved Readers by Patrick Jones and Exploding the Myths: Teens and Reading by Marc Aronson, participants will hear firsthand about research activities and current resources that support teen literacy. They will also gain intergenerational sensitivity and acquire competencies to advocate for teen literacy. Don't miss this special event! This event is primarily funded through an Institute of Museum and Library Services LSTA grant awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
