Is the content aligned to national and state standards?

Yes, Follett MyDestiny™ stays up to date with the latest national and state standards.

The books and Open Educational Resources (OERs) in Follett MyDestiny are tagged by the content topic. This surfaces the most relevant content through the artificial intelligence in Follett MyDestiny when an educator has specified the standards being targeted.

The system also displays reading levels and interest levels when an educator or student looks up a particular book or OER.

The educator has all the tools and information needed to align the content and activities in a lesson with any content and skill standards being targeted.

 


 

What subject areas and grades can Follett MyDestiny™ cover?

Follett has long-standing relationships with multiple publishers and is able to continually acquire engaging content for Grades 3-12 in science, social studies, and English language arts (ELA).

Support for reading comprehension skills is incorporated throughout the content areas, as building deep background knowledge is correlated with greater reading growth and reading ability.

Follett MyDestiny will be your go-to for enjoyable nonfiction and fiction!

 


 

Can the content be differentiated?

Yes, teachers can choose a topic in Follett MyDestiny™ and find a variety of interest levels within that topic to enable differentiation.

Publishers work with a variety of reading level programs, such as Lexile®, or Fountas & Pinnell, for leveling their books, and filtering tools enable teachers and students to search for and identify texts at different interest levels so that content can be differentiated for every learner.

It is important to consider not only the reading level but also the interest level and the background knowledge of a student when selecting the right text complexity for a particular student.

The variety of interest levels also lends itself to the importance of read-alouds above reading level for building background knowledge orally, as well as guided reading for small group instruction and independent reading for practice.

 


 

Does Follett MyDestiny™ support remote learning, distance learning, eLearning and hybrid learning?

Yes, Follett MyDestiny™ is 100% web-based and can be used for all kinds of distance learning, either as a standalone solution or in conjunction with your learning management system (LMS). Follett MyDestiny™ is compatible with computers, tablets, and phones, giving remote students the ability to complete their work on just about any internet-connected device they have at home.

Educators can work collaboratively to develop and share online courses. Unit, plus lesson and assessment development tools, along with access to over 50,000 eBooks and 100,000 vetted Open Educational Resources (OERs), enable teachers to create engaging, interactive courses.

Follett MyDestiny™ supports whole-class, small group, and independent learning. Educators can identify texts and resources, and embed activities that can be shared synchronously with an entire class.

Teachers can also differentiate texts, resources, and activities for groups of students, including students who may need additional support – English Language Learners and special education students, as well as students working above grade level.

Integration with leading learning management systems supports students in collaborative interaction on assignments and projects. Lesson components can also be pushed out to students for asynchronous independent learning and practice. 

Embedded tools support all instructional formats and student engagement, including eReader highlighter, notes, dictionary lookup, and text-to-speech.

5 Ideas to Boost Independent Reading

Encouraging independent reading with middle and high school students is an important goal of English teachers.

The joy, the fun of a new book, of curling up to read and get lost in a story. All parts of a language arts class start with reading. As teachers implement whole class novels, literature circles and paired passages, they also encourage independent reading.

10 Special Reading Activities Families Can Do Together

As we get ready to celebrate within our community, I have been thinking a lot about how the love of reading and connection to wonderful books, supports early reading and writing skills, strengthens vocabulary development, and gives our littles the skills and confidence needed as they prepare for success in school. 

Keeping Literacy Alive Through Book Clubs

One of my favorite things I’m part of in my school is our Project LIT Community chapter. Our book club meets the last Friday of every month, during school, to discuss our diverse books of the month and work towards our community service project. Some months our group is large, and other months our group is small but mighty.

#ClassroomBookADay

Started by Jillian Heise during the 2014-15 school year, #ClassroomBookADay was inspired by Donalyn Miller's (@donalynbooks) #bookaday challenge. With a goal to read aloud a picture book every day of the school year with her 7th & 8th grade students, 180 complete texts were shared that helped grow classroom community and reading engagement. After sharing it at #nErDcampMI that summer, other teachers wanted to try it.
