For over forty years, Professor Emeritus David Booth, was involved in education as a classroom teacher, arts consultant, professor, researcher, speaker and author. He has authored many teacher reference books and textbooks in several areas of curriculum development: the arts, drama and theatre, early literacy, reading, writing, speaking and listening, and media and recently penned a yummy poetry collection for children called Head to Toe Spaghetti. Poems that tickle your lips and tangle your tongue! Sadly, David passed away on December 22, 2018. As a tribute to his incredible legacy, the Ontario Literacy Association of Niagara will be hosting an after school event for educators, friends and colleagues of David Booth at the Trius Winery in the beautiful Niagara region. The event will be an opportunity for fellow educators to consider some of David’s great Literacy suggestions and lessons learned. A friend of David’s and fellow professor, Larry Swartz, will share some of the ways we were influenced by David and how has contributed to students developing their love of reading.
Event title: “Lessons Learned from David Booth”
Date and Time: Wednesday, May 8th; 5pm-7pm
