Curriculum, Coaches, Teacher Guides. Oh My!

Happy Friday! It’s been a hectic week in my little corner of the world. I won’t bore you with the challenges of being home with a sick child while the refrigerator goes on the blink. And I refuse to paint the pitiful picture of ice chests now holding the contents of said fridge and freezer. Or, the fact that Murphy’s Law is alive and well and laughing at the fact the hubby is out of town EVERY time the domino of misfortune falls. Nah, I won’t bore you with that.

Instead, get a gander at the guests coming to Simply Donna in the next few weeks. I’ll be dedicating a number of posts to curriculum tie-ins, educational publishers, and the benefits of coaches and mentors.

Laura Purdie Salas. Besides being the author of a bazillion books for children, mostly for the educational market, Laura teaches many online writing classes. Join us for this enlightening post on educational publishers.

Esther Hershenhorn. We’ll take a peak at her book, S IS FOR STORY: A WRITER’S ALPHABET. Plus, you won’t want to miss her insights as a writing coach, including a bit of advice about incorporating curriculum tie-ins into your books.

Debbie Gonzales.
Deb will walk us through her process of creating teacher guides for books. By looking backward through the process, you might just get some ideas about ways to incorporate learning opportunities into your work, thereby increasing your market.
