Written by Jennifer Harvey, Curriculum Librarian
This month’s selection is a work of juvenile literature. A chapter book (the publisher has identified it as reading level Grade 3), it tells the story of an enthusiastic elementary school student who works for a cause and learns life lessons. In addition to providing access to the full-text of the book, the NetLibrary page for the book has links to teaching resources and activities, the author’s blog, and author’s Facebook page, among other resources.
Looking for resources to teach juvenile literature other than this title? Visit the Curriculum Department on the lower level of the library and find an impressive collection of juvenile literature (many award winners make up the collection), plus practical instruction resources, such as activity guides, videos, kits and games, etc. Scholarly works about acquiring reading skills and achieving literacy are part of the library’s collections, as well. These items can be found in the Book Collection on the upper level of the library.
Interested in public education and government initiatives related to education? Check out the Government Documents Department. Physically located on the upper level of the library, most new resources are available digitally from anywhere in the world through the library catalog. The government publishes curriculum materials as well. The New Curriculum Materials added to the Government Document Collections bibliography lists government produced curriculum resources and activities.
