TEACHING STUDENTS TO LOVE WRITING CAN BE CHALLENGING

When introducing a classroom writing lesson, do your students jump for joy or groan silently? 

 

Do students have trouble getting started,  write only the bare minimum, and/or complain about having to edit and

revise their work?  

As a teacher, It's hard to focus on writing when there are so many standards to include each day. It can feel exhausting and overwhelming.  Spending extra time on anything right now feels impossible. 

 

That's why Authorable was created.

WHAT IF...

1. YOU PERSONALLY KNEW A BEST-SELLING CHILDREN'S BOOK AUTHOR 

(who happened to be a speech-language pathologist in education)

 

AND

 

2. This author invited your class to help make decisions on her new children's book being published this spring? 

Would your students want to see behind-the-scenes of book publishing and ask her and the illustrator questions? What if she sent your class a video message and asked them to help draft the text for the soon-to-be published book?

COOL, HUH?!
THERE'S MORE!

  • From there, what if the new book was published with space for each student to physically write their own text directly into the book to tell the story in their own words? 

  • What if the whole school could order the book at wholesale cost and generate book proceeds for a local cause decided by students? 

  • Imagine if  ALL of this was already reading and waiting for you right now?  And once we had the nod of approval from school admin, you could simply login to the teacher portal  for access to videos and printable book classroom materials at your convenience? 

It's not too good to be true. It's the hard work of a national team of educators, who have dedicated thousands of hours creating this program, so (in approx. 10 min a week), you can:

BE THE TEACHER WHO GIVES YOUR STUDENTS THE LIFELONG MEMORY OF PUBLISHING A BEST-SELLING CHILDREN'S BOOK!

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 enrolling. We guarantee your students will make more for the community than what the program costs!

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

During 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 navigate this 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 as little as 15 minutes of class time required.

Promotes Philanthropy

Through using 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 materials to support and reinforce strong character traits, such as resiliency, compassion, teamwork, perspective, and leadership. Character matters to us!
