    by | February 1, 2024

    In this presentation, Elfrieda H. (Freddy) Hiebert will build on her research on vocabulary and the article “Fostering Hope with Children’s Literature” (The Reading Teacher, 2022), in describing how literature for children and adolescents can create a community of hope in classrooms. The presentation will include some of Freddy’s favorite books, all of which will be part of a drawing for webinar participants.
