By utilizing social media tools with your teens, you can elevate the buzz around reading and build a student-led culture of literacy at your school. Capitalize on their interest in social media to have them create book memes for Instagram or #BookSnaps modeled after Snapchat. Do literacy-style ThrowBack Thursdays or have fun with #BookFaceFridays. Get them tweeting and blogging about their favorite books and publishing their own stories with Wattpad or Createspace. Attendees will leave with practical ideas to get their students involved in creating and promoting literacy via social media. You can find my presentation at http://bit.ly/stlpassion
