Event description

Description

Especially for Brooklyn librarians, but all are welcome. We will meet at 131 Livingston Street in the 2nd-floor computer lab, Room 208, for a day of databases! Participants will learn how to maximize use of the NOVEL databases, which are available for free from the New York state library so that they can turnkey to students for research and inquiry-based projects. We will also cover some of the databases available exclusively from the Brooklyn Public Library. Some of the tools focused on will be Encyclopedia Britannica, Opposing Viewpoints, ASCD eBooks, Novelist K-8, SIRS Discoverer, Academic OneFile, Educators Reference Complete, and Health Reference Center, to name just a few. All of these databases have applications in the classroom and in teacher and librarian professional development. This training is limited to 25 participants. You must bring your Brooklyn Public library card in order to access the BPL databases.

This program is eligible for 5 hours of CTLE credit in Content.

The New York City Department of Education is recognized by the New York State Education Department's Office of Teaching Initiatives as an approved sponsor of CTLE for Professional Classroom Teachers, School Leaders and Level III Teaching Assistants.
