This audio webinar will give you inspiration and the tools to begin developing additional teaching activities that will enhance the curriculum of teachers in grades k-12. It will also provide the newest ideas and give you the information necessary to begin writing and selling your products to your target market. It can be a spring board for learning more and discovering this fun and exciting way to reach children of all ages.
This is what will be covered:
Teaching and writing are related in so many ways. As a writer you have the keen ability to enhance any teaching materials either for your own classroom or for other teachers by writing extra activities to enhance the curriculum. Added teaching activities are an excellent way to keep children engaged, introduce more repetition to a topic in a fun and age appropriate step, and to fill empty classroom time with a learning experience outside of the traditional reading and lecture.
Types of age appropriate additional learning activities:
• coloring pages with additional story to compliment the lesson.
• role playing activities where you provide the script or scenario and students ad lib the actions
• Visual aides
• games or puzzles
• learning booklets
Things to consider when writing additional learning material to enhance lessons:
• Cost to the teacher
• Cost to produce the product
• Target audience
• State core standards
• Does your material appeal to visual learners, audio learners, tactile learners?
• Why does this material enhance the lesson for the classroom teacher?
• How will this material be presented - (does it make more work for the teacher or make his or her job easier)?
• Your Unique spin on the subject or material
Types of material used in the lesson:
Is the product market friendly?
Who will buy the product?
Is there room to grow your products?
Join Terri to learn how you can create teaching tools that will make your books more appealing to teachers for their classrooms.
