Living Books Forum Coming to Orlando Area

Why Living Books Forum?
This event, created from an outpouring of parents who attended a workshop about living books presented by Cheryl Bastian and Tina Farewell at Books and Beyond 2014, is intended to equip parents and educators as they deepen their knowledge about living books as well as how to use them to maximize the learning potential of their children. Living books can impact every content area, for every child (including a child facing learning challenges), from elementary through high school. We hope to see you there.

What is a living book and how can it impact my family? 
Living books are authored by one person (typically), passionate and knowledgeable about a subject or story presented. This text is penned in narrative, conversational style, allowing the reader to walk alongside the characters, inviting the reader into the story--hence into the historical era or geographical context--involving the reader's senses and emotions, making learning natural and memorable. The subject comes alive, engaging thinking and learning on a deeper, more thorough level than a traditional textbook.

Living books can be incorporated into any learning or teaching philosophy, used as a primary resource or supplemental material with the purpose of enhancing interest studies. Living books can be used to teach any subject (yes, even math!) at any level, elementary through adult. 

Whether you are just learning about living books or trying to use them at the next level in high school, this event will offer something for everyone, at any point on the learning journey.
