BENEFITS OF AUTHORABLE

Values Student Voices

Students feel heard, seen, and inspired through interaction with the author as a book is made in real time

Helps Address
the Learning Gap

Teachers are able to integrate the excitement of “publishing a book” into their grade-level curriculum.  Teachers can even submit requests for specific book-themed classroom materials to be created!

Pays
For Itself

Each school’s book revenue outweighs the cost of the program. We guarantee your students will make more for the community than what the program costs, or the difference will be refunded.

Helps Support Teachers

We know teachers have a lot on their plate. All videos and materials are classroom-ready and intended to reduce workload.

Allows Kids
to Have Fun

After such a hard year, we intentionally deliver a positive, spontaneous energy to help motivate and engage students.

Provides Social & Emotional Support

Authorable’s focus on confronting potentially difficult topics through kindness, openness, and understanding provides built-in social and emotional support as students transition into a new school year.

Provides an Innovative Approach

Our award-winning program provides a unique student experience by allowing each child to BE AN AUTHOR and participate in making a #1 Best selling book, with only 15 minutes of class time required.

Promotes Philanthropy

Through planning a book launch event and using the book proceeds toward a local community-action project, students learn about philanthropy and entrepreneurship.

Gives Back to
the Community

Each “Authorable School” keeps 100% of their book proceeds and then students choose how to best help their community.

Builds
Character

As educators, we can’t help it. We always build in conversations to support and reinforce strong character traits, such as resiliency, compassion, teamwork, perspective, and leadership. Character matters to us!

 

Be your school’s hero by giving them the chance to publish a best-selling book. Your students can feel ownership this school year while using their skills to help others in the community. 

Classroom

We are accepting 500 innovative schools for our next book project.
