Video Wednesday: Blue Balliett Author Read-Aloud

Every day there is more and more video on the web. Some of it is great, educational and engaging. Some of it is . . . well, not so great. Jessica and I work together on the Scholastic.com Books & Authors Web site, so our job is to create many of the Scholastic videos about books and authors found around the site. On Video Wednesday we will cull the best videos both from Scholastic.com and beyond to find the gems you can share with your students to get them excited about reading.

Today we have a video of author Blue Balliett reading Chapter 1 of her newest art-inspired mystery, The Calder Game.

Scholastic.com has lots more teaching resources about Blue Balliett and her books.

Check back every Video Wednesday for video booktalks, book trailers, author interviews and author read-alouds. And please leave a comment letting us know what kinds of videos you would like to see here in the coming weeks.


Comments are closed. Please see Classroom Solutions, our new blog for the 2009-2010 school year. And stay tuned for Teaching Matters with Angela Bunyi and Beth Newingham.
