SCHEDULED EVENT DATE: Thursday, October 24th, 2013, 2:00-3:00 PM ET – 60 minutes

Everybody’s talking Common Core. And there’s lots of buzz about the increased focus on nonfiction. But wait, don’t let your eyes glaze over! Get ready for an entertaining discussion about how kids can have fun learning as we cover such informative topics as…What is reading anyway? What makes nonfiction authentic? How can nonfiction engage kids, inspire critical thinking, and spark their curiosity about the world? This webinar collects multiple perspectives to provide teachers, librarians, and parents with a tool-kit to understanding and promoting the goals of the Common Core State Standards. At their heart, the Common Core State Standards are about building knowledge, gaining insights, exploring possibilities, and broadening students' perspectives.

Please join us for this live stream presentation and afterwards for a reception in the Society's Library!

Hope to see you there.  PLEASE RSVP JGallagher@ngs.org
