Celebrating Multiple Literacies with Harry Potter
Arter, Lisa
English Journal, v98 n6 p69-73 Jul 2009
The secret to a good celebration is to involve as many students as possible and to give them genuine responsibilities and encouragement to be creative. Literacy celebrations offer students, and teachers, the opportunity to have fun and show off what they have learned during their deeper exploration of various literacy studies. The author conjures a cauldron of hands-on literacy activities inspired by J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter characters to develop various literacy skills and can be adapted for different ability levels.
