The LIVEbrary, an online educational program from children's book publisher Annick Press, welcomes guest author Shari Graydon for the fourth week of Media Awareness. The two-year program for middle school and junior high schools students, teachers, librarians and homeschoolers is funded by a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
Graydon will be chatting about her book "Made You Look," which challenges kids to become aware of how advertisers try to manipulate them. Graydon was also the guest author during Week 2, in which she discussed her book dealing with society's conceptions about beauty, "In Your Face." You can view a transcript from that live chat at the LIVEbrary blog:
Live chats are every Thursday afternoon from 2-3 p.m. ET. The chats are put on with assistance from Skype Technologies <http://www.skype.com>.
The LIVEbrary blog also features lesson plans, instructions for using the chats in the classroom, and registration information. Teachers, librarians, parents and homeschoolers must register in advance to participate in the LIVEbrary.
