  • Authors Visit Summer Literacy Institute

    The 11th annual Summer Literacy Institute "Inquiry to Make Connections," sponsored by the Reading, Literacy, & Learning and School Librarianship graduate programs, was held July 17-18, 2014.  The 130+ participants learned all about reading comprehension and questioning strategies from national literacy expert Doug Buehl, were delighted by award-winning author and illustrator Henry Cole’s banquet presentation, and enjoyed hearing four regional authors—L. M. Elliott, Meg Medina, A. B. Westrick, and Jason Wright—discuss their writing craft.  Twenty-four concurrent sessions rounded out the Institute program.  In addition to current Longwood graduate students, participants included administrators, classroom teachers, reading specialists, literacy coaches, and librarians from all across Virginia.
