Come to the Library at 3:30 p.m. this Thursday, November 16, for the November Author Talk.

Joy R. Cowdery, Linda Ingling, Linda E. Morrow, and Vicki A. Wilson of the Muskingum College Education Department will be our guest authors. They will talk about their newly published textbook, Building on Student Diversity: Profiles and Activities. Their book includes profiles and cumulative folders of six diverse children used to help students learn about diversity in the classroom. Activities in the book help teacher candidates recognize and understand a wide range of cultures and abilities, design instructional activities and assessments that meet the needs of all students, and communicate with families.

Everyone is welcome! Refreshments will be available.
