WebJunction’s Supercharged Storytimes


Supercharged Storytimes course has been updated and expanded.

Are you one of the more than 1,200 learners who’ve completed the Supercharged Storytimes course or are you brand new to it? This course includes more than 30 videos on topics like phonological awareness, vocabulary, involving parents and caregivers in storytimes, and building equitable relationships. It has been updated and improved to include downloadable video transcripts, as well as a separate index of all downloadable resources and handouts. You will need to create a free account to access this self-paced course, which can be started and stopped at any time, and should take approximately 10 hours total to complete.

You can also explore this new resource, Inclusive Collections for Supercharged Storytimes, to inform your efforts to curate diverse, inclusive collections for your storytime programs and help ensure that the children who participate experience a sense of belonging and can broaden their worldviews.

Supercharged Storytimes was developed with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and OCLC.
