Collection Analysis for Diversity, Genres and More | TeachingBooks
When: Apr 27, 2021 07:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
Join this hands-on session to learn how to use the BadgerLink-provided TeachingBooks tool to consider diversity, genres, and the just-right books for your students. Examine the titles in various collections and immediately receive a report revealing the cultural areas, genres, word count, reading levels, and more! Then, receive a collection of dynamic audio and video resources that you can give to teachers, students, families... anyone -- that deepen readers' connections to these very titles. Attendees will leave this workshop ready to use these tools to examine your collections for instructional, personal, and cultural needs.. If possible, bring a spreadsheet or listing of the books in various collections, reading programs, or classrooms.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Please note this additional message from Nick Glass of TeachingBooks:
If you are attending or not, we want to assist every WEMTA member to optimally set up TeachingBooks in your school. Technology changes quickly -- so, for example, if you use Clever or ClassLink, or your students have Chromebooks, we have new tools to make access seamless to our BadgerLink-provided resources about children's and YA books. Please take a look at this TeachingBooks on BadgerLink Set Up Guide -- where we lay out a few steps to ensure you're getting the most of these resources. And as always, please ask if we can assist.
Thank you and hopefully we'll see you on the 27th!
