Ollie is captivated by the tale until her school trip the next day to Smoke Hollow, a local farm with a haunting history all its own.

Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so hard on herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. As her confidence grows, Ally feels free to be herself and the world starts opening up with possibilities.

Audience: Secondary Educators

Dates: 8/12/2019

Meeting Times: Monday, Aug.12th at 9:00 - 10:30am

Location: No travel needed Join using Zoom for a live discus

Participants will read the book "Fact vs. Fiction..." BEFORE attending the session. We will use ZOOM video conferencing to meet. "Although the cry of "fake news" seems relatively recent, it's a refrain that's been heard throughout history, as LaGarde and Hudgins remind us, though the scope, proliferation, and speed at which misinformation spreads online garner more attention. Citing research, the authors state that the problem is less about the technology and more about readers who believe what confirms their biases. The book features a fake news self-assessment that presents news stories as they would appear on a cell phone-readers decide if the article is legitimate. This exercise demonstrates the difficulty in applying knowledge of traditional media to the news accessed on a cell phone, especially since news feeds are based on users' "likes" and whom they follow. Encouraging teacher and librarian collaboration, the authors offer educators many resources to use in honing their own skills and creating media literacy lessons that will help students navigate the overwhelming amount of information online. While the lessons here apply to students of all grade levels, the volume is best for educators working with fourth through twelfth graders. VERDICT A thought-provoking resource for teachers and librarians seeking to foster their students' critical thinking" Copies will be available for loan from Sullivan BOCES School Library System contact the office at 845-292-0246 or lynn.miller@scboces.org.

In middle school, words aren't just words. They can be weapons. They can be gifts. The right words can win you friends or make you enemies. They can come back to haunt you. Sometimes they can change things forever. When cell phones are banned at Branton Middle School, Frost and his friends Deedee, Wolf, and Bench come up with a new way to communicate: leaving sticky notes for each other all around the school. It catches on, and soon all the kids in school are leaving notes-though for every kind and friendly one, there is a cutting and cruel one as well. In the middle of this, a new girl named Rose arrives at school and sits at Frost's lunch table. Rose is not like anyone else at Branton Middle School, and it's clear that the close circle of friends Frost has made for himself won't easily hold another. As the sticky-note war escalates, and the pressure to choose sides mounts, Frost soon realizes that after this year, nothing will ever be the same."
