Attention, teachers…

Sorry to bother you. You are supposed to be in the middle of a well-deserved rest. In reality, I know you are preparing lesson plans, taking classes yourself, and trying to recover from last year’s 60- and 70-hour weeks.

On the off chance you might be using one of my books with your students next year, I’d like to draw your attention to the following.

I finally started the CATALYST teacher resource page and the THANK YOU, SARAH teacher resource page. Take a peek, please. (You don’t have to be a teacher to look!)

I’d love feedback from anyone who has additional discussion questions or activity ideas. I couldn’t do vocab words because all of my copies of all of my books are already packed. I was pretty tired by the time I finished, so if you see any typos, or sentences that don’t make sense, please let me know.

A teacher from New York State emailed me a link to her incredible curriculum guide for FEVER 1793 the other day. Along with all kinds of activities, it details which NY State standards are met. I have written back to her asking permission to put the whole thing on the website. I’ll let you know when it is up.

  1. I’m not a teacher, but when my english class did “Speak” we did a charecter analysis paper, then a final report-ish thing and related a charecter with a motif found in the book. (Sorry I can’t spell)
    And also we did journals every now and then by doing what Mr. Freeman did to his class, put pieces of paper into a globe that has part of it gone, and pull out one. Mine, was “Mountian”, so, it was a very fun filled lesson. I’m sure if you e-mailed my english teacher he’d be glad to tell you.

    Again, I’m sorry I can’t spell.

    I am one year from graduating and becoming a teacher and I thank you for linking the resources for your books because it helps greatly.
    THANK YOU SARAH would also be a good book to use as a read aloud before starting a persuasive writing lesson in secondary classrooms. I borrowed the book from the library during my author study, that I did on you and I loved all of the possible uses of the book in a classroom. Another idea is to use the book while doing family history researches in the younger grades, I know my son did this last year in fourth grade. I don’t have polished lessons because I don’t have a class to use them on but I have starting points.

  10. I read both books SPEAK and CATALYST for two reading projects in school and I would just like to say that they are really good books. The characters and plots are great!
