Interested in an author visit? I have appeared at ALA, the Illinois Reading Council, Indiana Library Federation, Connecticut Library Association and the Ohio Educational Library Media Association, as well as numerous schools and libraries spreading the message about transforming reluctant readers into eager readers, diversity in books and spreading the reading message to students.
I am available for in-person and Skype visits. I work with middle school and high school students. The visits are tailored to meet the needs of the library, teacher and/or school district. Click here to see details on sample programs and costs.
- Developing Critical Thinking
- Developing Empathy
- Having Fun (because without fun, the kids won’t keep reading)
As noted in the Common Core documentation,
such factors as students’ motivation, knowledge, and experiences must also come into play in text selection. Students deeply interested in a given topic, for example, may engage with texts on that subject across a range of complexity.
These and other values are incorporated in the following teacher’s guides (click to download a PDF copy):
Teacher Guide for the stories in Die Trying
Teacher Guide for Being God
Teacher Guide for Pull
Copies of any AllTheColorsOfLove titles are available at a discount to teachers and librarians. Check the here for details.
