The PreK–12 literacy resource TeachingBooks announced today a new partnership with Clever, the most widely used single sign-on (SSO) portal in K–12 schools nationwide. All of TeachingBooks’ resources that bring books and reading to life will be freely available to all educators in the Clever Library, a catalog of high-quality digital resources that teachers can deploy to their classroom within seconds.
Every story has characters whose voices we may remember long after we’ve closed the book. Finding those character voices and writing them authentically is an essential part of the writing process. Listen to these authors discuss how they found their characters’ voices and consider how you might find your own.
Encourage students to take their new ideas and organize them into a story. Learn about the creative approaches these authors and illustrators have to organizing details. Does a story always start at the beginning?
Use the resources on TeachingBooks to increase opportunities for student choice, support teacher-led instruction, and facilitate the integration of each into a blended learning, technology-rich environment.
