The New York City School Librarians’ Association (NYCSLA) is happy to announce our Saturday workshop with Olga Nesi, “Going beyond “Interesting”: Giving Students Vocabulary to Talk about Reading” on Saturday, November 20.
- Heard Olga Nesi at last spring’s conference, and were intrigued by the idea of teaching students vocabulary to talk about books…
- Read her article “It’s all about Text Appeal” in the August issue of School Library Journal…
- Or attended her session, “Getting beyond interesting: Giving Students a vocabulary to discuss their reading” at the conference at Brooklyn Tech last week…
and were excited about what you heard or read, this workshop is for you!
At this hands-on workshop, we will:
- practice working with “appeal terms”
- practice writing and critiquing book “hooks”
- discuss the challenges of teaching appeal terms to our students
Date: Saturday, Nov. 20
Time: 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Place: Library, East Side Community High School, 420 East 12th Street, New York, NY
Cost: Free to NYCSLA members, $20 for non-members
Note: This workshop is NOT an introduction to appeal terms. Before attending, if you did not attend her workshops at this or last year’s Fall Conference, please make sure to read her School Library Journal article.
