As a companion to the reading, writing and vocabulary assignments the teacher may assign, I will provide the teacher with a 3x3 Choice Board for either of the titles focusing on NexGen Science Standards. Topics included are: Ecosystem dynamics; Earth and human activity; and Engineering design. The Choice Boards will include interesting supplemental information for the students and for each square there will be classroom activities.
Author visit - virtual or in person - may be arranged at the conclusion of the program.
To arrange a program, receive Choice Boards with a suggested key, guidance from the author, and access to a publisher discount for purchase of books for your class, contact the author through this website or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
