  • http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Case_Studies/California_Free_Digital_Textbook_Initiative
    Overview
    In May 2009, at the request of Governor Schwarzennegger, California Secretary of Education Glen Thomas will work with State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O'Connell and State Board of Education President Ted Mitchell to develop a state approved list of standards-aligned, open-source digital textbooks for high school math and science. The initiative reviews existing free digital textbooks against California’s rigorous academic standards to identify which free textbooks are standards-aligned and may be used in California’s classrooms.
    The first phase of Governor Schwarzenegger’s digital textbook initiative focused on high school geometry, algebra II, trigonometry, calculus, physics, chemistry, biology/life science and earth science digital textbooks. In August 2009, the Schwarzenegger announced that 16 free digital textbooks for high school math and science classes met at least 90 percent of California’s academic standards, and four met 100 percent.
    Thusfar, the approved digital textbooks may be used as supplementary materials. In order for materials to become a required text, they must meet every standard, including California’s social content standards, which none of the digital textbooks have been reviewed for yet.
    Phase II, starting in January 2010, invites content developers to submit textbooks for review against California’s academic content standards in the areas of linear algebra; probability and statistics; world history, culture and geography; U.S. history and geography; American democracy; and economics. Review of submitted digital textbooks will be coordinated by the California Learning Resources Network (CLRN) and conducted by expert teachers and content specialists.
    Unlike Phase I, which had a submission deadline, Phase II will review textbooks on a rolling basis so that completed digital books do not have to wait until a submission window opens to get state approval.
  • cK-12 looks at first like a digitized text book -- and indeed the cK-12 textbooks are digitized by teachers/volunteers.
    Some of them have other resources available such as instructional videos, highlighters, and the ability to make notes in the text.
    Some have more interesting resources - video answers to questions, and study aids that can be downloaded and used.
  • Now more than 80 digital texts, aligned to standards.
  • ONE YEAR OR LESS?

  • Close Reading 101
    In this article in Reading Today, Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey (San Diego State University) say that close reading is “a form of guided instruction in which the teacher questions, prompts, and cues the learner. It’s part of the gradual release of responsibility, not a comprehensive instructional effort.”
    The first step is choosing a text that is complex, challenging, and worthy of scrutiny. “We’re not suggesting that first graders read War and Peace,” say Fisher and Frey, “but rather that the selected text requires repeated readings and deep discussions to ensure understanding.” English teacher Marisol Thayre puts it this way: “You don’t need to closely read Seventeen magazine.”
    A key skill for students to develop is annotation – underlining key ideas, circling words and phrases that are confusing, and writing questions or reactions in the margins. Annotation helps students develop a deep understanding of the text and marshal evidence for three types of activity:
    - Text-dependent questions – These “invite students back into the text as they look for evidence or consider something new,” say Fisher and Frey. Questions elicit understanding of key details, vocabulary, text structure, author’s purpose, and comparing two texts.
    - Discussion with classmates – This is an opportunity for students to express themselves clearly, make claims and back them up, see the text through the eyes of their peers, and build on each others’ ideas.
    - Follow-up tasks – These can include writing prompts or Socratic seminars and should draw on key information in the text and insights from peers, not merely students’ personal experience.
    “What’s the Secret to Successful Close Reading? Strategic Preparation and Follow Up”

  • Access to books in the public domain.
    It also has a wealth of musical scores, which can be use for analysis or enrichment for students.
  • Moving from consuming to creating...
    I first became interested in creating digital text while working with our Health teachers, who created an 'eBook' on CD in the early 2000s -- in HTML (first using Pagemill and then Freeway) and PDFs with embedded 1 minute movies that were captured in "one take" using a Sony Mavica.
