Once again it is time for our Wednesday Webinar: This Wednesday, July 9th, we will be hosting the third professional development webinar which will address issues  about finding "just right" books for students.  You can find the link to join the webinar below. 

Finding "Just Right" Books Webinar 
July 9th  3:30 – 4:30

We will discuss best practices for matching books to students, aligning books to curriculum, and an in-depth look at myON special collections. We will focus on the following topics:
  • Review of searching for books using book sets
  • Discussion of Lexile® levels and how to use them
  • Tips for finding books that meet specific needs
  • Showcase some special collections available in myON and how these can be used to engage and inspire students
Plus Q&A: to answer your most pressing questions and concerns.

Please be reminded that as part of the MOU agreement signed by each participating district, participation in professional development is a requirement of each pilot.   While this can be  and should shared with any teacher involved in the project, it is expected that there will be representation  by each pilot and / or teacher center in the webinars.
