The newest One School, One Booknewsletter is here. It features details from the Read Every Day experience in Weirton, WV; an interview with Grace Lin, author of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon; and a feature on RTT‘s Multicultural Education Specialist, Maia Kling.
In our next issue, look for our newest feature, Tips from the Field, featuring hands-on tips and recommendations from participating OSOB experts.
Chock full of humor, hijinks, lessons learned the hard way, ornery sisters, demanding teachers, mouth-watering cream puffs, New York Yankees, and choice Shakespearean curses culled by a 7th grader.
You can find all that in Gary D. Schmidt’s The Wednesday Wars – and that’s why it’s our newest Middle School title – designed to provoke and intrigue adolescents with all manner of interests – and their teachers – and even their parents.
Another great OSOB preview video. This one from Thomas Jefferson E.S. in Yorktown Heights, N.Y.
Check out their 5 minute preview video – designed to build excitement for their coming OSOB selection – E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web.
You can tell they’re all into it – students, teachers, parents, and administrators.
You can share this video with other schools to show them how to set up and build anticipation for their OSOB selection.
And look for more updates from Yorktown Heights on Twitter and Facebook.
"First, we’re having a GREAT time with the One School, One Book program... We’re getting thank you notes from parents already about how it’s “forcing” some families to have reading time that they seemed to have lost over the years!"
