The Open eBooks App Will Allow Children From Low-Income Homes To Access Thousands Of Books For Free

First Book, a new nonprofit, White House-led initiative, has joined forces with publishers, other nonprofits, and the New York Public Library to create an app called Open eBooks that will bring free literature to students across the country. The app is currently being developed by a team of tech leaders working with the New York Public Library, the Digital Public Library of America, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and will provide readers aged 4 to 18 years old, from low-income homes, with thousands of free e-books.

The Effectiveness of Free eBooks is Declining: Smashwords

 

Offering up a free copy of your eBook has been a good way for self-published and first-time authors to promote their books to new readers. However, according to a new report from self-publishing site Smashwords, that tool may soon be played out.

Sarah Worley's curator insight, November 3, 2013 11:25 PM

This is an informative source for understanding how narrative writing fits into the Common Core. It explains the Common Core Standards, shows prompts, and has samples of student writings. This source provides all explanations, prompts, and samples for all grade levels from K-12. I think this is a great starting point for teachers to argue the need to teach Creative Writing in the classroom. Creative Writing does build many writing skills (such as style and organization), but it often gets pushed aside as frivolous. Pointing out that the Common Core requires this type of writing may help it to reappear in the classroom.
