Why? Three big reasons!
1. Your students will build and practice their reading skills over the summer.
2. Your students will have opportunities to become independent learners.
3. It’s easy! Bookshare has simplified the Individual Membership signup process for schools that already have Organizational Memberships.
Sponsors simply log into their Bookshare account and create pre-filled Individual Membership forms with a couple clicks of a button. You can then, send the forms home for parents to sign and return to Bookshare. That’s it! This will enable your students to access Bookshare independently anywhere they have Internet access and to use Bookshare’s free reading tools at home!
Watch this short tutorial video on the Bookshare YouTube Channel to learn how to create pre-filled Individual Membership forms.
More Reasons to Sign Students Up!
In addition to reading independence, when students have individual Bookshare accounts, they’re empowered to download books anytime and anywhere they have Internet. This can improve reading comprehension because they can practice, reinforce, and retain knowledge outside of school.
You can also teach students to use free and easy reading tools, like Bookshare Web Reader, and help students find and organize books with our Reading List feature. Plus, your students can take part in fun and rewarding members-only reading events. Look for announcements for our next event soon!
