2018 Readiologist™ Cohort: Call for Applications

from There's a Canary in the Library by Don Freeman

Working with children requires a strong background in the books that speak to young readers in order to meaningfully individualize instruction, promote educational equity and create a lifelong love of reading.

Educator, parent or grandparent, student teacher, paraprofessional, librarian, bookseller, clergy or enthusiast, you stand to make a difference in the lives of children through your knowledge of the best books for children, advocacy and best practice.  We are looking for the fall 2018 cohort of Readiologist™ trainees to participate in a unique certificate program to become a supporting character in a child's reading life story. We aim to create experts in children's literature with a depth of knowledge and a commitment to service far and above what one might receive in a typical teacher training.

Participants will not only obtain a deep content knowledge and appreciation of children's picture books through one of the country's leading experts in children's literature, they will be trained for confident and inspired literacy leadership in their own communities.  We are looking for children's book lovers on a mission

This is an 8-week online workshop with professional development credits available.  To receive the certificate, there is a outreach project component which participants will have one year to complete, scaffolded by a like-minded corps.

Learn about:
Creating libraries and "third spaces" around books
Seasonal celebrations through children's literature
Children's poetry and biography
Multicultural children's literature
Reading pictures
Read-aloud techniques
Best new books
And so much more!
