Kathy Yancy is the opening speaker for NCTE’s Institute for 21st Century Literacies.
- First task: Define literacy
- Second task: Define 21st century literacy
- Third task: Identify 10 key terms that define 21st literacy
- Fourth task: Put key terms onto chart paper in some form. Here’s what our group of 4 came up with (using Wordle.net)
Bonus of opening session: Kyene Beers‘ explanation of “dip in/dip out” approach to Holt Language Arts program – very different than the scripted approach! I’ll be doing a podcast with her later in the conference.

I’ll have Ernest’s preso up before the end of the day – very cool stuff – the need for critical media literacy.
