Social distancing and remote learning are making it harder than ever to keep students connected to reading and to each other. But we’ve yet to meet a teacher that doesn’t love a challenge. In this edWebinar, we talk about what this era of social distancing needs in order to build and sustain strong reading habits.

In this edWebinar, we discuss:

  • The requirements for a strong social reading program
  • How to access and deploy thousands of ebooks instantly, and for free
  • Ways to promote collaboration among students that actually draw them close together – no Zoom or Hangouts required
  • Reading goals and ongoing challenges that motivate readers at all levels
  • Targeted interactions that build up readers and bring them closer together

We may be stuck at home, but it’s a brave new world for reading and we’re ready to explore it with you.

Watch this edWebinar to learn and to share reading engagement strategies that build a life-long love of reading for all students. Viewers will leave with a whole new perspective and a ready-to-go playbook of ideas that will transform their remote reading program.

This recorded edWebinar will be of benefit to middle and high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
