Sorry about that Pamela. I completely agree. The resource was created by myself, Tosca Killoran and Janet Hannah. Tosca and I are simply two teachers that saw a need and decided to collaborate with a great team at Follett to help solve it.
Since the book is available through an independent publisher, there is a cost. The unlimited license cost of $39.99 does allow all patrons within the learning community to have equal access, but we have reflected on this and will also soon be offering the book as a 1-1 purchase for lower cost investment.
The 1-1 purchase of this book will be available on Follett later this week for $9.99. We also understand people may want the book for their Kindle, Kobo, iPad, so we plan to have it also available for these devices within the next month.
We simply hope this helps students and teachers to have a greater ability to learn what Destiny is capable of, how it can be integrated as a useful tool, and how the entire learning community can get the most out of their Destiny Quest experience.
Jeff, what a great ad for your book! But it's not fair to talk about a resource without telling people that you wrote the book. And you really should include the price $39.99.
Does your school use Follett’s Destiny Quest? If so, you are going to LOVE this! There’s a great NEW resource out called Destiny Quest: An Educator’s Guide, which is a comprehensive tool for your classroom, school, or learning community to help get the most out of your Destiny Quest® experience!
This guide includes a simple step-by-step guide to understand the components of Destiny Quest®. As IB educators, we have developed sample lesson plans that are inquiry-based, and follow the U.S. Common Core State Standards. The eBook also provides access to a website, which includes extension activities, printable worksheets, assessments and how-to videos.
The eBook is available on Follett’s TitleWave (#5161FB1) or via www.DestinyQuestGuide.com.
If you know of any other educators or schools using Destiny Quest, please help us to spread the word via Facebook, Twitter, or any other network! Thanks!
Hi, Suzanne. I'm a part-time LMS at a PK-5 school in Wisconsin. Our public library holds the BOB (for 4th and 5th grade) contest for us. We had a couple of nonfiction books on our BOB list last year that might be good for your age level. Titanic: Voices from the Disaster was one that was too hard for my teams. Have you looked at the I Survived series? While the books are fiction, they are historically correct, and the kids enjoy them. I purchased one of the series for BOB, and the kids asked for the whole series (5 or so books). The Wisconsin state BOB contest http://www.wemta.org/programs/battle_booklists.cfm has some nonfiction on it. I'm sure other states do too. Take a look at their lists and go from there.
Please check out the New Zealand National Library website for schools
Practical and inspring resources, oodles of info! Feel free to contact me as well.
Hi everyone, I am a K-4 librarian in an independent school in Bethesda, MD. I am looking forward to learning how other librarians are using the latest tech tools -- what works and what doesn't. I will share what works for me when the school year starts!
