There are some good questions here. I might ask some a little differently i.e. what do you enjoying reading?

The Elements Of A Literacy-Rich Classroom Environment

The Elements Of A Literacy-Rich Classroom Environment | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

"Literacy-rich environments, as endorsed by the International Reading Association, have a significant impact on what goes on in the classroom and set the stage for interactions with a wide variety of genres...

 Perhaps we should begin by focusing attention on the classroom environment and making certain that it is a place that supports and encourages literacy learning. A literacy-rich environment not only supports the standards set by the Common Core, but also provides a setting that encourages and supports speaking, listening, reading, and writing in a variety of authentic ways – through print & digital media."

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | Digital Learning | Scoop.it
The terms 'critical' and 'reflection' are sorely misunderstood in education. Being critical is often misinterpreted as being negative. 'Reflection' is also frequently distorted to mean "reflect on what you are doing wrong". Too often the students that we teach give negative feedback when asked to be critical. So to counter act this, educators initiate strategies such as '2 stars and a wish' and SWNI (strengths, weaknesses, new ideas).
These strategies are designed to make reflective practices a more positive experience for students. It teaches them that being critically reflective is not just a negative activity, that it is important to be positive and give feedback to help improve or make something better.

A Liaison for a Classroom Building? Curating a Learning ecosystem.

A Liaison for a Classroom Building? Curating a Learning ecosystem. | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

"I could see a librarian dedicated to collecting, chronicling, and shaping the life of this building– curating, expressing, packaging, and facilitating everything that’s happening. Creating multiple entry points of conversation and bringing people together to celebrate their interests and ambitions. In short, the building becomes more than a bunch of classrooms; it becomes a participatory learning ecosystem."
