Getting Started with Storia: Ohio's 4th Grade eBook Collection

More info on this Webinar

Starting November 12th, Ohio's 4th grade teachers have free access to a special collection of 160 eBooks through Scholastic's Storia as part of a pilot program for the remainder of the 2014-15 school year. The 160 titles were specially chosen to support Ohio's 4th grade standards in English, math, social studies, and science. The project is the next phase of INFOhio's mission to provide free access to eBooks to all Ohio PreK-12 schools.
