Dates: 6/15/2022

We invite librarians and educators at the middle school and high school levels to this monthly two-hour book group. There are no prescribed titles to read ahead of time, rather this group focuses on sharing out 1-3 titles read recently by participants that others should know about for curriculum, booklists, and additions to their libraries and classrooms. All discussed titles can be viewed at the Capital Region BOCES YA Book Group on Goodreads.
For a fun introductory activity to start planning for next school year, build a digital escape room for your students to solve! We will use Bitmoji, Google Slides and Google Forms to make an escape room based on your own classroom. A variety of tools for creating clues will be covered, and you will be shown sample escape rooms for inspiration! Build the foundation and you will have all summer to think about specifics!
