Summer Educator Workshops

Attention, educators! Are you tired of using the same old books with your classes every year? Attend one of the library's summer educator workshops to learn about the latest and greatest books to use in the classroom. All workshops will be offered online this year.


Gotta Read This: New Books to Connect with Your Curriculum: This workshop highlights new books you might integrate into your language arts, social studies, math, science and arts curriculum. We have separate workshops for kindergarten to fifth-grade educators and sixth- to 12th-grade educators.

Kindergarten to fifth-grade educators: This is a two-part webinar, with part one on August 4 from 2-3:30 pm, and part two on August 6 from 2-3:30 pm. Register now

Sixth- to 12th-grade educators: Register now, and we’ll contact you to let you know when the online booklists are available.  


Novel-Ties (for fourth- to eighth-grade educators) online workshop: Hot, new fiction to use in book discussion groups and literature circles. Register now, and we’ll contact you to let you know when the workshop is available.  


2020 Talking Equity and Social Justice: Free Booktalks for Educators and Parents: Are you looking for some good new books to share with youth on topics like diversity, equity and social responsibility? Multnomah County School Corps Librarian Cathy Camper will share quick booktalks for educators and parents on titles that address these topics. She will also share tips about using books to promote equity. Online lists of the books will be provided. This is a two-part webinar, with part one covering materials for grades K-5 and part two for grades 6-adult. Part one is June 30 from 2-3:30 pm, and part two is July 2 from 2-3:30 pm. Sign up for either or both. Register now

Thank you
I am interested in the Talking Equity and Social Justice workshop.
Please let me know about any dates as they become available! I love your workshops and will be in a new support position at my school next fall, working with grades PreK-5, so I'd be interested in signing up for all online workshop dates!
I'm interested in all the book talks listed. Thanks.
I am looking forward to new read alouds!
