Books in the works!
Winter is a time for writing and I’m happy to be working on books in all stages of development. Black Rabbit Books is polishing my six book set for reluctant readers titled Sports Records. Meanwhile, I've just finished a fun science book for Capstone Press on Wi-Fi: what it is, why it works, and how it came to be. Finally, I’m always creating speculative projects, including a teacher resource book about reading difficulties, a middle grade novel titled Garbage Boy, and a knowledge-based, earth science-infused literacy program for primary students.
Dyslexia Seminars Across the Country
Throughout this winter and into next spring, I’m on the road for the Bureau of Educational Research, presenting a national seminar on dyslexia. The seminar focuses on what dyslexia is, what it isn’t, and how teachers can support striving readers in their general education K-6 classrooms as well as prevent reading difficulties from happening in the first place. The seminar is sea to shining sea (and beyond), from Portland, Maine to Honolulu, Hawaii. Meeting so many wonderful teachers in so many great states is the best part of all!
