Welcome to My Books
Welcome... I hope this Website was easy to find. This Website allows you to explore the books I have written over the years. Links to my books can be found at the top left of this page. You may email me and tell me what you think. All of my books provide instructional strategies. Educators will find the lesson ideas and/or Internet based instructional resources permit several ways to learn the skills and content each respective book addresses. At this time, I have two books. One designed for beginning readers, which applies the LANGUAGE EXPERIENCE APPROACH. This book for new readers presents pictorial visuals and easy to use strategies aiding young readers' discovery of meaning between the printed text and pictures. A reader's prior experiences enhances the reader's comprehension by the pairing of logographic visuals with the printed text. The second book accomplishes reading and social studies objectives. This second book, for upper elementary readers (4th grade to 6th grade), includes humor and introduces readers to ancient history in a unique blend of story elements with actual historical events, people, buildings, and teachings from ancient history. Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome become alive when the reader uses the Internet based ancient history content supports, illustrations and hyperlinks, to research and study the stories of ancient history.
