Teachers

We’re here to help!

 

Dear Teacher,

Here you’ll find everything you need to help your students get the most from Book Trust’s program.

Below you’ll find a complete collection of teacher resources, many of which were mentioned in your online training – lesson plans, choice resources, family engagement handouts, and classroom videos – that will help you implement our program with the greatest success, and help your students get the most out of their new books every month.

Enjoy your experience with Book Trust (thousands of teachers already do!) and thank you for all you do for your students.

If you haven’t done so already, be sure to complete your training by your school’s deadline, listed here.

You can login to your online teacher training at any time during the school year here.

The Art & Science of Book Trust

Book Trust involves five key components of program fidelity. Whether you are brand new to Book Trust or a seasoned pro, we've put together some resources, tips, and sample lesson plans you’ll find both useful and inspirational.

Interest-Based Choice

Teachers help students learn to make interest-based choices, supported by peer-to-peer conversations around choice during class time.

Frequency of Participation

Book Trust teachers facilitate the book ordering process every month of the school year.

Celebration

Teachers lead monthly celebration on the day the books arrive, elevating the importance of reading. Kids get excited to talk about and read their new books.

Independent Reading

With teacher support, kids get time in class to read their Book Trust books before they go home.

Family Engagement

Teachers help deliver a consistent message about nightly reading with Book Trust books, empowering families to build and support a culture of literacy at home.

Scholastic Logistics

Scholastic Book Clubs is the much-valued book distribution partner of Book Trust. Although we are not affiliated with them in any way, we are grateful for their partnership, which makes it easy and simple to get books in the hands of the kids who need them most. Below you will find all the resources you learned about in the online training, and more.

Choosing Scholastic Books

Interest-based choice is at the heart of our program. There are a number of resources that you, as a teacher, can use to create a monthly routine around book choice.

Ordering Books

You will be ordering books from Scholastic Book Clubs every month of the school year. To ensure that orders are placed correctly every time, we have created a number of resources that can help you through the process like the Scholastic Ordering Instructions PDF and the Bonus Points video.
