CLOSE READING: MAKING E-BOOKS BETTER CURRICULUM TOOLS
Our guests are Alisa Jones of Clay County FL schools and 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.
"You tell them, you tell them that our, our lives can change with every breath we take. We both know that. And you tell them to let go of what's gone, because men like Roger Briscoe never win. And tell them to hold on like hell to what they've got...each other and a mother that would die for them and almost did. You tell them, we've all got meanness in us, but we've got good in us too, and the only thing worth livin' for is the good. And that is why we've got to make sure to pass it on." -Novalee from Where the Heart Is (Trailer)
This movie is a beautiful example of life and the many woes that may occur, but as we learn to do better we do better! Adversity doesn't rule our lives or ruin our lives; adversity informs our lives of a better way depending on our perspectives.
Here is a video of many scenes from the movie put to Martina McBride's "There You Are" which shows the love story of the movie between Novalee and Forney.
Join us for Where the Heart Is, which touches on superstitions, expectations, tragedies, and dissapointing relationships yet teaches us that life can and does go on when we choose to rise above the harms that have befallen us! This is one of those movies to keep on your shelf anytime you run into trouble and have no idea what to do next!

THE RETURN OF THE THREE. WE LOVE IT
Presented by FOLLETT LEARNING
According to a report by the American Library Association and the Center for Library and Information Innovation at the University of Maryland, more than 25 million Americans reported using their public library more than 20 times in 2008, up from 20.3 million Americans in 2006. Particularly in the wake of the economic downturn, more and more Americans are turning to public libraries for such things as job hunting or to seek government services and continuing education.Library and information science degree-holders bring in $57,600 mid-career, on average. Common jobs for them are school librarian, library director and reference librarian, and there are expected to be just 8.5% more of them by 2020.
Last year, state funding was either cut or held constant in 34 state libraries across the U.S. Average salaries fell for directors and rookie librarians alike. And in 2011, there were 173 fewer public libraries than in 2001. Mona Chalabi and Andrew Flowers
