Welcome to Red Deer Press!
Memo from Fitzhenry & Whiteside, Red Deer Press, Fifth House Publishers & Whitecap Books
To Teachers & Educators who are providing distant learning to classrooms in a virtual classroom setting
Story-time or classroom read-aloud videos in which one of our books is read alound, and the book is displayed may be created and posted to closed education platforms such as Goodle Classroom, Schoology, Edmodo, and Discovery Education in order to replicate the read-aloud book experience that would otherwise be available to educators in the classroom
Teachers planning to share a story time video by recording a video and uploading it to a YouTube channel, may do so as long as the video is inside a closed educational platform; the video must be designated as UNLISTED (not public) when uploading. Please do not host these videos on the educational platform or YouTube (UNLISTED) past September 30, 2020.
Booksellers and Librarians who wish to provide a story-time reading or other such similar entertainment to your library visitors may stream live, real time, on social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook Live, Twitter & Instagram. Please insure, however, that these read aloud events are not stored in the archive of whatever media is chosen. This should be done by immediately deleting the video from the social medium as soon as it has finished.
We would appreciate your help and cooperation by letting us know here at Fitzhenry & Whiteside whenever you plan to record such a live reading event.
Thank you and
Fitzhenry & Whiteside
