Putting Books to Work

Putting Books to Work takes the traditional "talking heads" author panel and reimagines it as a hands-on workshop. You'll dive deeply into classroom-friendly titles with the acclaimed authors who wrote them, create title-focused materials with fellow attendees, and leave with practical, teacher-generated ideas for incorporating those books into your curriculum.
