Fall Season Webcasts Offer Something for Every Student and Teacher
This fall season, Scholastic is offering THREE LIVE WEBCAST events that deliver original, engaging, and interactive content directly into classrooms.
Winter's Tail: A Virtual Fieldtrip to Clearwater Marine Aquarium
October 7, 2009, 1:00 pm EST/10:00 am PST
Students will go deep underwater (while staying on land!) as this webcast explores the facts about dolphins and the inspirational true story of Winter, whose journey of courage and determination is documented with the new book Winter’s Tail: How One Little Dolphin Learned to Swim Again. Author Craig Hatkoff and special guests (including Winter!) will join the webcast too!
Get Goosebumps! with R.L. Stine
October 28, 2009 1:00 pm EST/10:00 am PST
What’s Halloween without a few scares? Bestselling author R.L. Stine will weave a spine-tingling story on the spot, with YOUR students’ help! Students can submit their ideas for a thrills-and-chills story in advance, and a tie-in writing contest will see one lucky student and school win a Goosebumps prize package!
The 39 Clues: Advanced Agent Training
November 2, 2009 1:30 pm EST/10:30 am PST
To unlock the mystery of the 39 clues, kids need highly classified, super-intense skills. Hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, this webcast will offer just that! All five authors, of the first six books of the groundbreaking, multi-platform series, including Rick Riordan will help students uncover the secrets of being an agent. Upon successful completion of the training, your classroom will receive a secret code that unlocks never-before-seen files that will help answer a key question in the series. Pre-register for your webcast event kit and for details on The 39 Clues Advanced Agent Training Essay Contest!
Join us on exciting adventures without leaving your classroom!
