Teaching students to Read and Write the world

Austrian National Library, Vienna

How is literature of today both symbolized in this image and not? How do the texts contained in libraries interact with those in newspapers, online, or on city walls?

What is conceptual Literature?

Reading and Writing the world

Conceptual Literature is a way of thinking about reading and writing the world.  Through writing, workshops, and consulting, Kathleen offers educators and students a way of learning that is purposeful, relevant, malleable, and creative.  Rather than swing on the pedagogical pendulums offered to us, we find a voice and strength in using what is valuable when it is relevant.  Kathleen provides ideas and insight, structured creativity, approaches to assessment, methods of concept based learning and inquiry, the use of the mind-body connection in the classroom and more, but everything she offers is in flow.  She works with teachers or students in creating something meaningful that should continue to provoke thought after the learning experience.
