How to Build a Community of Engaged Readers with Bookopolis

Mar 2, 2016 12:00am

Credits: None available.

Members: $0.00
Standard: $6.99


In this webinar, Dr. Laura Sheneman, Coordinator of Library Services and Information Resources for Region One Education Service Center in South Texas, and Kari Riedel, founder of Bookopolis, an AASL Best Website, show how elementary and middle schools are using Bookopolis to build a community of engaged readers. Bookopolis is a social network and book discovery tool that lets students safely connect with peers to share book reviews, recommend books, and discover the next book they can’t wait to read. Think of it as a Goodreads made just for young people with built in tools for educators. Participants will learn more about the value of building a strong reading community and practical ways that this site is used to get students buzzing about books.

  • Learn research on why a strong reading community is important for young readers
  • Create educator and student accounts in Bookopolis
  • Explore social features and book discovery resources on Bookopolis
