November 2008 Newsletter

Visiting Author

The CMC will be hosting a visit by author/illustrator Will Hillenbrand on Thursday, November 13, at 3:00 P.M. A reception will follow, and everyone is invited. To see a list of Will's books in the CMC, click here.

Teaching Aids

A major project is underway now to reclassify all the Teaching Aids in the CMC. Be sure to ask Mr. Martin or the CMC Student Assistant on duty for help if you are unable to find what you're looking for. Things may be a little confused until the project is complete, but the result will allow for much more efficient browsing of the collection. Also, the puppets are being separated from the rest of the Teaching Aids and will be displayed on special racks.

Website of the Month

The Ohio Resource Center for Mathematics, Science, and Reading is a project of the State University Education Deans, funded by the Ohio General Assembly and established by the Ohio Board of Regents. ORC provides links to peer-reviewed instructional resources that have been identified by a panel of Ohio educators as exemplifying best or promising practice. Available resources also include content and professional resources as well as assessment and general education resources that will support the work of preK–12 classroom teachers and higher education faculty members. The resources are correlated with Ohio's academic content standards and with applicable national content standards.

New Materials

Over 50 new items were added to the CMC collection oduring October, including books, videos, and teaching aids. Click here to see the complete list.
