Inviting book authors into your classroom

Last week I attended the International Reading Association Annual Conference in Atlanta to present FreeReading. While I was there, I met Nick Glass, founder of I love the concept behind his site–to invite book authors into your classroom as you read their books! The site states: specializes in creating original content with award-winning authors and illustrators to enable you to connect with the author the moment you are reading a book — for any subject area you are teaching.

Authors talk about journaling, doing research, bringing history to life, and working with inspiring ideas. Illustrators show techniques they use to create picture books, graphic novels, and more. original content highlights the opportunity for you to have the author as a primary-source resource, sharing the professional work they do. original content includes:

Although I typically don’t talk about for-fee sites, this one is too good to pass up! To get a glimpse of what the site is about, check out the FREE author name pronunciation guides or start a free trial here.

Happy author studying!
