Talking up a storm: using interactive prompts to promote cultural practices in family reading of visual narratives - Thursday, December 8 at 8pm CT / 6pm PT
An interesting addition to attending to the cultural identity of students, is the idea of also attending to cultural practices in reading. Not only is the content of reading material important, but so are the children’s interactional practices surrounding reading through talk learned in their communities and home. Using visual narratives to support cultural practices in reading can be an important way to affirm the contribution of families to children’s literacy. Designing interactive prompts for engaging families with graphic novels was a key component of pandemic learning in the home fostered by Altera, an after-school non-profit.  This short session will present the premise, as well as examples of a variety of conversational tools used for family reading of wordless picture books, comics and graphic novels.
