Our mission is to enhance teaching as a profession.
Nook E-reader Lending Program
Nook e-readers are available for loan through the Mid-Hudson Teacher Center to educators in our member districts. These e-readers make it easy for students to highlight, take notes, and look up unfamiliar words. They can also be very helpful in addressing the skills of using text-based answers and writing from sources. Training on use of the Nooks is required for borrowing. A workshop on using the Nooks is being offered January 29, 2014. A class set of Nooks can be borrowed or a small amount to do group work for up to a month at a time. Attached is a list of the books that are available for use on the Nooks. Some of these books are from the NYS ELA modules. Any questions please call the office at 845-257-2885.
