Creating Reading Posters
Technology is awesome because it is my tool to learn, research, create, and connect. November is Digital Writing Month and I want to delve deep into learning, researching, creating, and connecting with the challenge, #digiwrimo. I find learning, researching, and connecting fairly easy, but creating?
I used The Daily Create to begin my creating journey. The Daily Create is full of short creation prompts and longer creation assignments. I browsed the many intriguing prompts and assignments until I settled on one that I could use in the classroom:
This was the assignment:
Since 1985, the American Library Association (ALA) has tried to sell reading books as cool by showing celebrities reading their favorite books…Experiment with this tradition, introduce a celebrity with a book who hasn’t been recognized yet, but should be. Or use the poster you create to poke fun at a public figure, or do something else all together. have fun.
Here is my creation! Drumroll please….
I had a blast creating this poster! I love that I was able to create something for my classroom. I’m really hoping students will find it funny and that it will encourage them to read!
I can’t wait for #digiwrimo because I know the creation challenge will make me a better learner, thinker, and creator.
Here’s to creation and innovation!
