devote weekend to literacy
In November, 25 Beavercreek City Schools teachers and staff
attended the renowned 17th Annual Mazza Weekend Conference in
Findlay, Ohio, to focus on literacy. The presenters, all award-winning
children’s book authors and illustrators, talked about creativity, inspiration,
and promoting reading in younger grades.
Speakers included Peter Sis, Ashley Bryan, Bagram
Ibatoulline, Divya Srinivasan, Gianna Marino, and Jen Corace. The conference is
sponsored by the Mazza Museum, the first and largest teaching museum in the
world that specializes in original artwork from picture books.
