Teacher Features (below) are creative, easy-to-follow lesson plans on Keats books. Whether doing a comprehensive author study or reading just one book to the class, busy teachers can find everything they need to use Ezra in school.

Education Consultant Gayle Bendeck presents a creative, adaptable lesson plan on a single Keats book, and adds a little something extra—a video, an interview, an art display or helpful links. Plus, this bimonthly lesson syncs up with a new game and a range of activities inspired by the same book. It’s a triple play for teaching Keats! Go
