Redbird Educator Series: Learning to Linger, What Picturebook Design Can Teach Teachers about Lingering in Texts with Children
Endpapers. Publishing information. Dust jacket. What on earth do these things have to do with a read aloud? Known as peritext, calling attention to these elements has the power to transform a typical classroom read aloud.

In this webinar, I will guide participants through the features of picturebook design, from the front cover to the barcode on the back - and everything in between. In studying and pondering these peritextual elements of books, children make deep connections, consider new ways of taking up literature, and deepen their meaning-making when transacting with texts. Participants will be invited to explore their favorite picturebook in a whole new way. All participants are encouraged to bring a picturebook (preferably hard cover, but not required!) to explore during the webinar.
