What would happen to the learning curve in your school if your teachers and students collaborated with a team of award-winning, nonfiction authors in a school-wide project that promotes the joy of learning? We asked that question last year and here’s what happened: The Common Core State Standards focus attention on nonfiction and the skills necessary to produce and interpret it. The iNK authors have been practicing these skills throughout their careers and can pass on their knowledge of how to master them to your students. Use our books as mentor texts, hear the author’s voice as you learn content, ask us how we conduct our research and make decisions about what to include. Learn as we “unpack” our processes. In order to teach critical thinking, you need to give students something to think about. So our books are aligned to National Curriculum Standards so it’s easy to find inspiring and informative material on the subjects you’re required to teach. Authors on Call can collaborate with your teachers and students via a series of live, interactive videoconferences so that together, everyone is fully immersed in the joy of learning.
