I invite you to take time to watch this insightful video with one of my favorite teachers of all time, Dr. Bob Fecho, of the University of Georgia. The two courses I took with him, READ 8100 Inquiry Based Literacy and READ 8990, a seminar course on reader response/transactional theories of reading, in 2002-2003 were life changing for me professionally and personally. I’m excited to read his new book, Teaching for the Students: Habits of Heart, Mind, and Practice in the Engaged Classroom! I find that my roots in Language and Literacy education continue to inform my work as I am dwelling in the questions related to digital composition and reading and how that intersects with my interest in participatory literacy. If you enjoy this video, then you may also want to consider reading Fecho’s book Writing in the Dialogical Classroom: Students and Teachers Responding to the Texts of Their Lives.
