Maupin House has launched a new digital initiative by offering chunks of their educational books in small, downloadable sections. I was excited when Julia Graddy, the publisher, informed me that Teaching the Story was one of the nine books chosen to be available in this format.
As their website suggests, teachers can easily peruse nine different books and then select the materials which will enhance their classroom. Maupin House encourages teachers to "Think beyond the book and custom-create your own classroom solutions.... Items including lesson plans, activities, and rubrics starting at $1 can be at your fingertips within seconds. Buy only the information you need, when you need it."
If I was teaching in the classroom now, I would love the books which Maupin House is offering in this manner. Specifically, I am familiar with Margriet Ruurs excellent work on teaching poetry in the classroom, The Power of Poems; Steve Johnson's comprehensive book Digital Tools for Teaching; Maity Schrecengost's book Writing Whizardry; and Deidre Godin's book, Amazing Hands-On Literature Projects for Secondary Students.
Choose a la Carte or from the full menu. If it's from Maupin House your appetite for educational resources will be satisifed.
