Teaching Books has recently partnered with OHIONET to offer a new educational resource to K-12 schools and libraries.
WHAT IS TEACHINGBOOKS.NET?
TeachingBooks.net is an easy-to-use website of multimedia materials about fiction and informational books for children and young adults. About 30,000 schools, libraries, and teacher education institutions currently subscribe.
On Teaching Books you'll find…
• A digital library with tens of thousands of resources supporting every book being read in the K–12 curriculum
• Exclusive movies and audio productions with authors introducing their books and revealing their craft, enabling anyone to learn directly from the author when reading a book
• Audio book readings, author websites and blogs, video book trailers, and other engaging resources to infuse multimedia into reading activities
• Ready-to-use, professionally vetted lesson plans and book guides that prompt discussion and enhance the teaching of books
• Resources aligned with Buckeye book award lists, state reading lists, national standards lists—or your own custom lists
• BYOD and 1:1 support with QR Codes that let readers instantly have multimedia materials about the books and authors they are reading
• Attractive Flyers and Shelf Cards, for use in library displays and classroom book sets, as a way to easily link your texts to our content
• Qualitative text complexity rubrics from the CCSS for all books, and reports for each teacher about the text complexity (quantitative and qualitative) for the books they are assigning or using in their classes
• Robust support for Common Core instructional shifts through all grade levels and curricular areas
• An equity tool that connects all readers with authors anywhere, anytime
