OLA/CSD 2015 Mock Caldecott Worksho*p

On January 10, 2015 we will hold a Mock Caldecott Workshop
at the Salem Public Library from 9-4.

This year promises to be an event you won't want to miss. Attendees will
learn about Visual Thinking Strategies from Kim Aziz who will lead us in an
interactive session using their methods of teaching children how to think
using images in art to help foster the kind of thinking tools sought in the
Common Core Standards. Attendees will also get a crash course in Caldecott
Criteria before heading into small group discussion of eleven picture
books. Be part of the vote for Oregon's Mock Caldecott title!
