Answer: I have conducted training in school districts such as LaCrosse WI and the Kansas City School District. Much of the training that I have conducted has been in three day summer institutes for the National Council for the Social Studies as well as a number of one day institutes for the Bureau of Education and Research.
In addition to the books listed, I have written for Pearson Education, Blake eLearning, the Bureau of Education and Research (BER), the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS), McDougall-Littell, The Northwest Educational Association, WGBH, The Educational Development Center (EDC) of Boston, The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, C-SPAN, PBS, and Gareth Stevens, Inc.
What: What topics do you focus on in your training and writing:
In my training I focus on practical, active, and thoughtful strategies that teachers can incorporate immediately in order to improve their students’ engagement, literacy, and critical thinking.
In my writing my focus is on writing for teachers in the areas of teaching strategies, lesson plans and ideas, and for children (10 and up) in the areas of social studies, history, geography, biographies, current issues, archaeology, and science topics.
