PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These 2 library centers are designed to be used in a school library, but they could work just as well as a literacy or writing center in a classroom. Students will write reviews of an app they have used or a book they have read, and they will support their opinion with reasons. If you use an online library catalog software to submit the book reviews, students will also have the option to publish them for other library users to read.

Included in this product:
- Lesson plans aligned to PA Common Core and Academic Standards, National Common Core Standards, and AASL Information Literacy Standards
- Center signs with "I can" statements in PDF and editable Word file formats, portrait and landscape orientations
- Pinterest board link with suggested Android apps for school library use (All apps are also available on iOS / Apple devices.)
- How-to instructions for both setting up Destiny(R) to allow students to write moderated reviews and for setting up a Google form to collect app reviews

Tech requirements –
Both the App Review and Book Review writing centers require Internet access. As the name suggests, the App Review writing center requires access to tablets with some pre-loaded apps.
The Book Review writing center needs Follett Destiny(R) version 8.0 or above, or similar online catalog software, AND students need usernames and passwords in order to write and publish book reviews via the school library online catalog. Of course, reviews can be published just as easily on a moderated class blog, on Scholastic’s “Share What You’re Reading” website, or even on Goodreads in a middle or high school library.
