The SIBLization Resource Guide

Literacy Professionals! Join our education list-serve today!

Soon after we released our first CD of Songs Inspired By Literature, Chapter One, many of you wrote in to tell us about the ways you are using SIBL to enrich teaching and learning at every level. (Click here for 3 quick examples of how to SIBLize your classroom!)

Below, meet some SIBLings of Note who have shared their methods and ideas with us. An adult literacy technique can often be adapted for high school, for instance, and a college course on curriculum can give good questions for a literacy session. SIBL thanks all the inspired educators and activists who continue to send us their great ideas.

  • Book Club: Lynne Price chose Motherless Brooklyn for a tutor-and-learner book group that meets every month.

  • Motivation for Reading and Writing: Missy Corbett used the SIBL "7th STEP" and Angela's Ashes in an adult literacy learner support class at a correctional facility

  • Curriculum Design: Dr. Steven Selden is using the Chapter One CD as the basis for university class to discuss curriculum design.

  • Poetry and Genre Writing: Randy Weaver enriched literacy tutors' work with a class based on poetry and lyrics.
