Reader, Writer, Gamer invites classroom teachers, librarians and media specialists, technology coordinators, and administrators to explore how affinity spaces can foster student learning in middle school and high school.  In this workshop participants will focus on how affinity spaces can be used to support literacy learning across the secondary curriculum and address the Common Core State Standards.  This workshop has three primary objectives:

1) Enhance participants’ understanding of literacy across the curriculum, drawing on situated and sociocultural perspectives on literacy

2) Investigate how affinity spaces can support content area literacy and implementation of the Common Core State Standards

3) Cultivate a professional learning community of secondary educators and university-based researchers who are interested in designing online affinity spaces, conducting action research, and sharing resources within the education community.

Participants should bring their own computer or tablet.
