Teaching Resources

In this section I share teaching materials related to the activities described in my book. I hope you will experiment with them in your own classrooms. For each activity, you will find a brief summary on the website and downloadable materials to explore further. These include Activity Guides with a longer description, detailed outline and reading suggestions; templates and handouts. I have also included student quotes and work examples to provide an idea of the learning experience.
