Choice and Challenge in Any Setting for Joyful, Engaged Learning

with Katie Egan Cunningham

If ever there was a time for joy, the time is now. While the challenges of 2020 are still with us in many ways, we can intentionally plan literacy instruction with a focus on joy to support students with meaningful and memorable literacy experiences. When we plan for joy, we support students to know that their reading and writing lives are a pathway to make discoveries about themselves and deepen connections with others.

In this webinar, Katie Egan Cunningham shares instructional strategies from her book Start with Joy: Designing Literacy Learning for Student Happiness focused on the pillars of choice and challenge as drivers of joyful learning. Whether you are teaching face-to-face, hybrid, or remote, students are craving the joy that comes from the feelings of mastery and recognition that often accompany self-directed learning and purposeful challenge. Learn about what the research says about choice and challenge as catalysts for joyful learning and leave with practical ideas for supporting student-driven projects that meet your language arts and literacy goals.
