1:00 - 3:00 PM
This is a Two-Hour Remote Interactive Presentation with Pam Victor, President, Happier Valley Comedy. We ask you attend live with access to video/microphone.
Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone this secret: In this remote interactive presentation, professional improviser Pam Victor shares the exclusive collaboration superpower that allows improvisers to create comedy out of thin air, so you can use these trade secrets for building stronger collaboration, communication, and resilience at work. This presentation provides easily applicable techniques for quieting the inner critic to build more confidence and adaptability. You'll receive fun, hands-on experience with why we overuse "no" to restrict progress, and how we can get to a "yes" mindset in order to move forward together with more positivity and creativity. Through humorous stories and impactful exercises, you learn how to use improv superpowers to improve brainstorming, flexibility with change, team empowerment, and creative problem solving. Participants also receive links to instructional demonstrations of improv games to play online or in-person with young patrons, families, and friends.

MISelf in Books is an annual list of diverse books for Michigan learners. The list was selected by a committee of certified school librarians who are members of the Michigan Association for Media in Education (MAME<https://gcc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mimame.org%2F&data=04%7C01%7CLancasterC5%40michigan.gov%7C64da23c6ae344097fc7208d897f17979%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637426410666177496%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=cEtwPAuJTsdMZrauoUcWl9IgSlBsEm0H41Um2tsL9LA%3D&reserved=0>).

The books are all published in the last two years and written by #ownvoice authors and will include books for all grade levels: PreK-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-8, and 9-12.
A list is that is screen-reader friendly, an app, and additional resources will available soon! Watch for more updates to follow.

Rural Library Summit: Accelerating 3rd Grade Reading Outcomes in Rural Places<https://www.berea.edu/pfe/librarysummit/>
December 10, 2020
1-5 PM ET
The Rural Library Summit is a half-day celebration of the impact libraries have on the aspirations of young people and a recognition of their contribution to third grade reading outcomes, especially for students in rural communities. Research has shown that children who read on or above grade level in third grade triple their chances of attending college. The Summit will explore how libraries can grow their impact on third grade reading leveraging community support and resources. Participants will learn about and connect with a range of opportunities with regional and national organizations, including the newly launched Rural Library Fellowship. The program will support the efforts of 22 Fellows to engage in initiatives to increase third grade reading in their communities.

Money Smart MI initiative is once again providing free copies of this year's book to libraries across Michigan for use in money-themed story time events during the month of April, 2021. These events will probably look a little different this year; they might zoom, or be live on facebook, or part of a grab-and-go project, but we can't wait to see how you use this wonderful resource!  Our 2021 Michigan Money Smart Kids Read book is (drumroll please...) Cinders McLeod's Moneybunny book, "Give It!<https://gcc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.penguinrandomhouse.com%2Fbooks%2F599550%2Fgive-it-by-cinders-mcleod%2F&data=04%7C01%7Clancasterc5%40michigan.gov%7Cfaab3879ecab477700d108d8962d9b73%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C1%7C637424469919359222%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=OhEBSAcRND%2F%2BujDXX3S%2FWNVVC%2Ff9jDKNWruhGT0%2B3mw%3D&reserved=0>".

Coding for Kids Virtual Event
Friday, December 11th
Every year on the second Monday in December, computer science education week (CSEdWeek) engages K-12 students around the world in computer science with hour of code activities by providing interesting hour-long coding tasks for students. This year, the Michigan accelerate computer science (MACS) collaboration is encouraging Michigan students to complete an online computer program lesson with the "Coding for Kids" Virtual Event on Friday, December 11, 2020. "Coding for Kids" is also an attempt to break a Guinness world record by having the most people complete a computer science lesson within 24 hours. MACS is reaching out to educators of all content areas to help their students sign up with parental permission. Educators can find details on how to engage their students with a computer science lesson in the MACS Educator Flyer (https://bit.ly/3lJkegb). For more information from the MACS, please see the MACS website, https://www.miacceleratecs.com/.

Michigan Learning Channel Moving Forward
The Michigan Learning Channel team is quickly moving forward on plans for its January 2021 launch. The Michigan Learning Channel is a statewide public television partnership offering instructional content to support the education of students and to provide alternative resources for families and teachers. When the channel launches, it will provide instructional programming in early literacy, social and emotional learning, and math for K-3.
"Brain breaks" for social and emotional learning have been finalized, and a series of in-home exercise videos for kids are in production. Updated plans include some educational programming suitable for middle and high school students in the evenings and on the weekend, until more specific content for grades 4-12 is developed. A sampler of content similar to what will appear on the Michigan Learning Channel can be viewed at www.MichiganLearning.org<https://gcc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Flnks.gd%2Fl%2FeyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.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._P-Vd8GpUTsXSL_CnzJGEgwEjhoSoGS0Kl5vuW5RbL8%2Fs%2F597604808%2Fbr%2F91045592520-l&data=04%7C01%7Clancasterc5%40michigan.gov%7C63effe52146a4052ccdb08d897ac1b59%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637426112741590105%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=v9fBJMPn8cQEalLFytEfRbvzQ9m4JxCL182w9mJ1vFA%3D&reserved=0>, and school leaders are encouraged to send feedback to the learning channel team by email to MLC at DPTV.org<mailto:MLC at DPTV.org>.
