Literacy work stations, when done well, can solve both of these problems—and more. Literacy stations provide partner practice using what teachers already have in their classrooms. During her presentation, Debbie will show teachers how to create and sustain meaningful, engaging literacy stations that grow and change as their students develop new skills, and as instructional time shifts.

Katie Kelly, Lester Laminack, and Vivian Vasquez define the word ‘text’ broadly to include printed material as well as spoken text, songs, interactions, and events (both current and historical).
