WLU InstituteMaking Meaning: Teaching and Learning Together

Pasadena, California, July 17-19, 2014

The 25th Annual Literacies for All Summer Institute opens a conversation about the transformative potential of curriculum with learners at the heart.  The conference theme, Making Meaning: Teaching and Learning Together, affirms the professional role of teachers in working closely with learners and developing learning experiences that respect the cultural backgrounds, interests and literacy development of learners.

Making meaning highlights learning as making sense of our world and celebrates the many ways of making meaning including reading, writing, talking, signing, listening, viewing, thinking, constructing, designing, singing, composing, playing, imagining, dancing, drawing, painting, sculpting, gaming, and inventing. 

Teaching and learning together describes classrooms where learners have agency over their own learning and teachers are learning with their students.  In addition, teaching and learning together may occur in homes, libraries, community centers and agencies, after school and summer programs, literacy networks, agencies and social action groups.
