    Dear Colleagues:

    World Read Aloud Day is 2 February, 2022!

    Attached is a 2018 International Literacy Association article explaining how two classroom practices -- reading aloud and independent reading -- promote lifelong reading.

    This article is appropriate for all language and content instructors as well as adults with children in their lives.

    To close, here is a poem by Emily Dickinson:

    A Word is Dead

    A word is dead
    When it is said,
    Some say.
    I say it just
    Begins to live
    That day.

    Best wishes,
    Laura
