Join the TeachingBooks Zoom Party on Monday, January 25 to watch the announcements of this year's book awards from the American Library Association with fellow book enthusiasts. Together participants can share joy, cheer, and even resources as the award-winning titles are announced. Your classes are, of course, welcome too!
The Newbery, Caldecott, Printz, Coretta Scott King, and many other awards will be announced.
It is super fun and energizing to partake in the award announcements with others. And in this challenging era, celebrating this professional moment together seems spectacular.
Discovery Education, partnered with Common Sense Education, has created an entire content channel devoted to News and Media Literacy. It features videos, songs and games, Social Emotional Learning material, critical thinking activities and lesson plans, and much more. All content is divided into grade level groupings (K-5, 6-8, 9-12) to make searching easier. To quote DE:
These resources will help students demonstrate the ability to identify, evaluate, and use information effectively, find credible and trustworthy sources, and give proper credit. They will recognize how individuals and society are influenced by the media and the misrepresentations and stereotypes they sometimes promote. Students will reflect on their responsibilities and rights as creators in the online spaces where they consume, create, and share information.
We have your educational needs covered, whether it be through digital resources in our fantastic ERS Portal, or physical resources available for delivery and pick up through the ERS Library. We also continue to offer our ongoing Virtual Learning Resources via Zoom, where you can participate in a session on one or more of our Portal resources and learn how to better integrate digital content into your physical or virtual classroom. Whatever the situation, we’re here to help!
