Social reading is increasingly making its way into K12 schools. On this episode of Liquid Margins, we’ll be joined by Morgan Jackson and Joe Dillon, high school teachers who focus on reading, writing, and literacy. We’ll discuss their methods and practices for teaching with social annotation, and all the ways secondary school educators can use the margins to build reading comprehension and classroom community, and engage students more deeply in interpreting texts and practicing critical thinking. Note: Liquid Margins is a show where we gather to talk about collaborative annotation, social learning, and other ways we make knowledge together.
