On October 20, 2021 at 2:00pm CT, Sharon Draper will give a presentation about the power of teachers (who get double extra credit for the past year!), the importance of reading, and the connections needed to move to the next level of literacy and advocacy for all our students. Having taught for thirty years in Cincinnati Public Schools and been named National Teacher of the year, Sharon Draper has traveled worldwide as an advocate for teachers everywhere.  

 

We will also get a sneak peek into Out of My Heart, the long-awaited sequel to Out of My Mind, which takes Melody to summer camp. For the first time in her life, she is away from the comfort and support of family and caregivers. At camp, she uncovers strengths she never knew she had, the courage she didn’t think she possessed, and freedoms she never thought possible.  Through the flames of a campfire, the fury of a rainstorm, and the wisdom of a horse named Jolie, Melody discovers the joy of true friendship.? 

 

We hope this event will:  

  • Introduce you to an author with who you might not already be familiar.  
  • Extract topics from this series that could align with your lesson planning. 
  • Give you the author’s viewpoint on the story as well as a deeper background understanding. 
  • Provide you with educator resources to incorporate into your daily lessons. 

Questions about this event should be sent to pubsubmit@follett.com
