Free Online Classroom Webcasts & Videos

Dear Educators,

Scholastic's mission is built on helping children learn to read and love to read. For more than 90 years, you have been our partner in the classroom, delivering free educational content and classroom resources directly to you to help open a world of possible for your students through reading and learning.

Our FREE online classroom webcasts and videos were developed to support and enhance many of the subjects in your lesson plans from language arts to history to social studies and work in tandem with the online and print materials you're already using. They also offer your students the opportunity to virtually visit exciting locations or meet their favorite authors.

We continue to incorporate your valuable feedback into our planning process. Because of your insights, we've been able to define a number of key requirements that will ensure a more successful and more consistent experience for you. So, wed love to hear from you as we strive to make all of our online classroom events as informative, educational, and engaging as possible. Please continue to send us your feedback at LiveWebcasts@scholastic.com.

Scholastic is privileged to help teachers and parents discover and use the books and information, in print or electronic forms, which can build strong lifetime foundations for reading and learning. Thank you for all you do — for us, and for your students.

Sincerely,

Billy DiMichele
Vice President, Corporate Productions & Creative Services, Scholastic Inc.
