How can us working in school libraries enlighten our school district with the actual intent of F&P leveling? It seems like the F&P Text Level Gradient is being misused.

I just listened/watched this webcast. Is there something I can download or print to prove I registered and attended this? I need to keep track of my hours of professional development for my school corporation. Thank you.

Yes, there is a green resources folder in the menu dock at the bottom of the screen. You can find a copy of the slides and a CE certificate. Please use the registration link to visit the on demand recording and access the folder.
