Ezra Jack Keats continues to be a classroom favorite, and a great deal has been written about him and about teaching his books. In addition to his own work, in print and other mediums, there are biographies, curriculum guides, articles and websites—many of them are listed here. Whether doing a comprehensive author study or reading just one book, busy teachers can find everything they need to use Ezra in the classroom.
Teacher Features presents new material centered on a single Keats book. We introduce a creative, adaptable lesson plan, and discuss what it entails and why we like it. Plus, something extra with each plan: a report on how the lesson plays in class, an interview or discussion, a display of student art or helpful links. All-new items appears bimonthly, with the same book selection as in Book Activities & More and Fun & Games. It’s a triple play for teaching Keats!
Resources contains all the teaching tools previously available, and soon will be reorganized and expanded to become even more teacher-friendly.
