Share a Story – Shape a Future 2012

Share a Story Shape a Future blog tour for literacyAs the song says …

“Start spreading the news”

Yep! Planning is underway for our 2012 blog tour for literacy. Mark your calendars for the week of March 5, 2012, as we’ll be spending five glorious days exploring literacy, reading, and raising readers.

As we announced on the Share a Story blog last week, the theme for this year’s blog tour is

The Culture of Literacy

To say we are all very excited about the possibilities the theme offers would be a H-U-G-E understatement. There are so many ways to expand on this idea.

On each day of the Share a Story blog tour, a host will collect & share content on one topic that relates to our main theme. These are the mini-topics currently on the drafting board:

  • Reading as a passport to other worlds / cultures
  • Creating a reading culture
  • Understanding the reading transformation
  • Understanding readers
  • Reading: the cross-cultural Commodity.

Everything is pretty much written in pencil, and we are actively seeking host bloggers, guests, and sponsors to join in the next phases of planning and the event itself.

Can you join us? We sure hope so! Got an idea? Do share … we want our Fourth (!) annual blog tour for literacy to be our best yet!
