School Visits


The Declaration: A Historical Look: Too many Americans are out of touch when it comes to the importance of the Declaration of Independence. In this presentation, I take students through a historical look at the events leading up to the signing of this important document by comparing 18th century culture to modern day America. This program can be adapted for children K – 7.
Building a Writing Career: In this presentation I speak to students about writing and how to start building a successful writing career. This program can be adapted for children K – 12.

Presentation Needs: A table for props, a whiteboard or chalkboard, and a flat surface for maps or documents are helpful. A microphone is needed for larger groups in big rooms with over 50 students. Bottle water is appreciated.

Presentation Format: Presentations last approximately 45 minutes, followed by book signings. Presentations are best suited for 1-2 grade levels at a time, and I will present to either small groups (a single classroom) or larger assemblies. However, smaller groups do allow for more interaction with the students.

Honorarium: $300/half-day (up to 3 presentations), plus expenses (which depends upon the distance from my home). Schools within a reasonable driving distance of each other may share presentation expenses. Contact me with any questions.

Book Sales: The Declaration of Independence from A to Z is available from Pelican Publishing Company at a 40% discount when sold in conjunction with an author visit. For more information about me coming to your school or Pelican’s discount and return policy, please contact the School Sales Manager at 1-800-843-1724, ext.319 or Rates subject to change. Please call for the latest information.
