This collection of more than 300 titles was selected to support Ohio's Learning Standards for 4th and 5th grade.
Beginning August 1st, follow these steps to access Ohio's 4th & 5th Grade eBook Collection:
Scholastic's Storia is a collection of eBooks that helps teachers track students' reading and comprehension progress. With funding from the Ohio Department of Education, INFOhio worked with Scholastic to license a subset of Storia School Edition. The 300+ books included in the collection are hand selected to support Ohio's Learning Standards.
Beginning August 1st, request your school's access code. You will receive an email message with the code that you can use to Register for Storia School Edition, set up your class, and assign books.
INFOhio currently offers BookFlix for grades K-3. The Storia collection is the next step in providing eBooks for Ohio schools.
People within a school who work with 4th and 5th graders can request a Storia access code. Literacy coaches and librarians are obvious choices. However, they will want to coordinate Storia access with the fourth and fifth grade teachers so that a student does not have more than one Storia account, which would dilute reading improvement data.
Yes! In fact, that's a great way to coordinate a student's reading across the curriculum. One access code lets you create up to 9 classes with up to 45 students each, so if your 4th grade is larger than that, you will need additional access codes.
Our license for Storia covers just teachers who work with 4th and 5th grade students. We ask public librarians, however, to please encourage 4th and 5th graders in their libraries' after school programs to access their school Storia accounts.
Yes. You can find it in the Training & Support materials.
Most desktop computers, either Mac or PC, and Chromebooks run Storia. Mobile devices such as iPads, Android tablets, and Amazon tablets also work. Scholastic does not recommend viewing Storia on Phones or Phablets. For a complete list of supported devices, operating systems, and browsers, see the Storia Support and Resources document in the Training & Support section below.
Storia is offered at no charge to all Ohio 4th and 5th grade classrooms for the 2018-19 school year.
When a teacher moves from one district to another, she will need to use her new email address and request an access code for the new school to create a new account. If a teacher moves from one building to another within the same district, she can keep the same account.
Yes. Teachers can use the template provided by Storia to easily upload a .csv file of their students. Once a class has been created, the teacher will see the option as well as the template.
Storia is also partnering with Clever to make student information loading and student log in even easier. See the Storia Support and Resources document in the Training & Support section below for more information.
This resource is suitable for students in the following grades: 4th, 5th
