CLOSE READING: MAKING E-BOOKS BETTER CURRICULUM TOOLS

Our guests is John Williams, Follett Learning's Director of Digital Products.

Reading to learn has never been more important, and writing with skill and focus can open more doors than ever before. As for arithmetic, well we all know that isn’t going anywhere any time soon. But in order to move forward into a brave new world of digital learning, we cannot forget the past, and at its heart are books. Reading and gaining a deep understanding of what is read is not exactly where Facebook posts, Tweets and dramatic headlines are taking us, but the essential skills of reading are the same. And so is learning to read for deeper understanding—close reading is more important than ever to better prepare students for what they will encounter in life.
