Teach With INFOhio

Getting Started with Storia for the 2021-2022 School Year

Author // Sarah Mowery Monday, 12 July 2021

Students in grades 3-6 will now be able to use Storia, a collection of over 1,200 eBooks. Individual teacher accounts for educators who teach grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 allow teachers to assign lessons, run reports, and track student progress. 

Storia includes unlimited use nonfiction and fiction eBooks to support Ohio's Learning Standards. In addition, it supports instructional needs and can be used for individual, small-group, or whole-class reading assignments and activities. 

The expansion to grades 3-6 are licensed through the RemotEDx initiative and will be accessible through the RemotEDx Exchange website and the INFOhio website. The new content will be available to Ohio teachers and students in grades 3-6 soon!

Teachers who have not changed districts, schools, or positions and used Storia during the 2020-2021 school year will not need to create a new account. Teachers should save any data from the 2020-2021 school year before August 31, 2021 as that data will be deleted on this date.

Access codes will remain the same for school buildings that used Storia during the 2020-2021 school year. However, if your building is new to Storia, access codes will be made available in early August. To learn more about how to get started with Storia review the Storia Getting Started Lesson in INFOhio's Learning Pathway class. 

There are several options for rostering students into Storia:

Manually Rostering Students

  • If you manually roster or add students with a .csv file the classes can be added now to Scholastic Digital Manager. 
  • Make sure to select the 2021-2022 school year in the drop-down option when manually rostering students.

Google Classroom

  • Syncing students using Google Classroom is now an option, but should not be completed until on or after September 1, 2021. 
  • To learn more about rostering students using Google Classroom with Storia check out this lesson in our Storia Learning Pathways Class. 

Clever Integration

  • If your school district is interested in rostering students into Storia using Clever, contact INFOhio as soon as possible at support.infohio.org to get this process started.  
  • Schools who used Clever last year to roster their 4th and 5th grade students in Scholastic Digital Manager for INFOhio’s Storia collection can send 2021-2022 data for Storia via Clever. This will set the system in place to sync for the coming school year.
