A spotlight on some Qlovi biographies: Kristen Stewart, Calvin Klein, Dwyane Wade, Langston Hughes, Jay-Z

Qlovi Store Spotlight: Biographies

Hello Fellow Qlovi Educators!

Sometimes it is a challenge to grasp the attention of our reluctant readers, but as educators, we must work hard to help our students find books that suck them in. Teaching a unit that incorporates biographies can offer students the element of choice. Allowing students to choose an individual who interests them might be exactly the hook they need.

We encourage you to try a unit or project incorporating biographies. If you do, please share about how you used Qlovi biographies by emailing us at educator@qlovi.com.
