Encouraging Young Authors and Young Readers.
Goodman Y.; And Others
This paper discusses two conferences that focus on readership and authorship in an attempt to make reading and writing more significant in the lives of young people. The Arizona Young Authors Conference provides a wide range of opportunities for students to write and to begin to realize their potential as young writers. Participating children, from kindergarten through eighth-grade, represent their schools and include a variety of academic, socioeconomic, linguistic, racial, and ethnic groups. The Young Readers Award stimulates the interest of children and youth in reading literature. The children read, or are read, at least 5 of 20 selected books and vote on their favorite, to express their appreciation to authors who write in a manner which appeals directly to them. Many persons in schools, libraries, universities, and homes are involved in these conferences and are working together with a common goal of encouraging reading and writing by all children in the school/library community.
