  • Join the Transform Your School Library movement
    Mackin Educational Resources, global distributor of print and digital media to PK-12 schools and libraries, announced the formation of the TYSL movement, or Transform Your School Library. This philanthropic endeavor was designed to provide school librarians and educators with critical information related to the evolution of today’s school library. TYSL is comprised of dozens of the country’s leading change-advocates committed to shaping the future direction of school libraries. Advisory board members include district level professionals, teacher-librarians, superintendents and more. Several nationally recognized professionals have excitedly signed on as Advocates to help educate and share the vision. “This revolution will serve to change the school library and school librarianship forever. School librarians are now becoming educational leaders as libraries are being transformed into learning commons that K-12 students love to be in,” remarked Randal Heise, President of Mackin. “TYSL was formed to make this vision a reality in every school across the nation.” National and regional conferences, webinars and guest-speaking events are just some of the immediate plans scheduled to promote and enlighten schools and the public on this topic.

  • McGraw-Hill Education launches free project-based literacy instruction
    In an effort to reach all students with meaningful literacy instruction, McGraw-Hill Education, a learning science company, has launched SRA FLEX Literacy Projects Jumpstart, a free introduction to project-based literacy intervention for grades 3-12. Released in conjunction with the 2016 National Title I Conference, the complimentary 15-day lesson plan covers all five stages of the SRA FLEX Project Experience in an easy-to-follow sequence, aiming to boost literacy skills through reading, writing-centered activities and group collaboration. The free, introductory FLEX Literacy Projects Jumpstart bundle includes: The FLEX Literacy Projects Startup Guide and Login Card FLEX Literacy Projects resources for either Elementary (3-5) or Secondary (6 and above) classrooms A Collaboration, Presentation and Writing Assessment Guide A FLEX Literacy Projects ePresentation, among other FLEX Literacy Projects Resources "Project-based learning is one of the most effective methods for instilling complex skills in students, and – since virtually no skill is as complex or as crucial as literacy – it’s vital that we make project-based lessons available to as many classrooms as possible," said Christine Willig, president of McGraw-Hill Education’s K-12 group. "The FLEX Literacy Project Experience’s reading, writing and group activities help guide a far more meaningful learning experience by fostering higher-order thinking skills that are invaluable in the classroom and beyond.” Project-based learning asks students to apply key knowledge and skills by solving real-world problems and performing exercises that push their critical-thinking abilities. The highly relevant, standards-based instructional support provided by project-based learning makes it ideal for struggling students. Aligned with Common Core and state standards for reading, the FLEX Literacy Project Experience for grades 3-12 empowers educators to precisely adapt instruction to the needs of diverse of learners by addressing writing, speaking, listening, language and informational text. The program’s writing-centered projects include research, presentation and collaboration, providing a radically different way of learning. Students discover the excitement of thinking critically, communicating ideas and collaborating with their peers to develop written and oral presentations. Students can apply their literacy and technology skills to science, social studies and health projects to make cross-curricular associations with projects that build community connections.

Kilte-Awlaelo Schools Development Association successfully celebrated its 9th anniversary in Boston, MA on July 21, 2012. The Boston and Maine brothers and sisters were well prepared for the success of the event. Members who flew to Boston to attend the event were also well prepared. Most members rented their own cars from the airport which helped to reduce the burden of transportation on the hosting city brothers and sisters. The time they were going to spend to transport members used it to coordinate other activities of the event. And that strategy worked perfectly.
