Inquiry and INFOhio: Evaluating Information

Written by // Mary Rowland Thursday, 07 October 2021

Learning how to effectively evaluate information is not only an inquiry skill—it is a life skill. Whether evaluating an apartment lease contract, selecting the best post-secondary program and school, or deciding which candidate to vote for in an election, students today will need to evaluate messages, media, print, and visual text throughout their adult lives to make informed decisions.

Use Storia in the Content Area Classroom

Written by // Emily Rozmus Thursday, 30 September 2021

INFOhio offers over 1200 fiction and nonfiction eBooks for Ohio’s 3rd - 6th graders through Scholastic’s Storia. This reading resource allows teachers to create classes and assign specific titles to groups or individuals based on their reading levels and preferences. Students can also browse the titles and choose books to read on their own. Teachers can check in and monitor the progress made by students, viewing reports with statistics including number of pages and minutes read. The books also have an end of the book quiz where student knowledge is tested and teachers can check for comprehension.

Family Engagement: INFOhio Provides Opportunities for All

Written by // Emily Rozmus Wednesday, 04 August 2021

There's no doubt about it: when parents are involved, students do better. According to the Family Engagement Collaborative of the Miami Valley, family engagement in schools leads to higher student achievement and graduation rates, fewer behavioral problems, better self-esteem, and stronger performance by students from diverse backgrounds. 

There will always be barriers to family engagement, but framing it as an "opportunity for all" can help schools move beyond the barriers. The Framework Institute advises that promoting family engagement as an equity issue and policy matter focuses the initiative on inclusivity and opportunities for achievement for all children and will help schools look at how current practices may exclude some students and families. Introduce the high-quality instructional materials available at no cost from INFOhio to families to help remove barriers and provide opportunities for all.
