Darleen Bailey Beard
Teachers & Librarians,
Are you getting your students ready
for this year's state writing test?
Darleen has a special nonfiction 5-paragraph
essay workshop just for YOU!
New "Nonfiction for Mummies" Writing Workshop!
Darleen presents a fun and "spooky" PowerPoint presentation about ancient Egyptian mummies (with photos of real mummies! Kids will love it!) and then provides students with a "fact sheet" that covers all the facts they learned during the presentation.
Then she directs students as they write a 5-paragraph essay and foscuses on the three parts of an essay: Introduction, Body, Conclusion and using the "5Ws & H" as students write the body of their essay.
It's a FUN FUN and very INFORMATIVE hands-on writing workshop that your students will love. So invite Darleen to teach this workshop to your students. You'll be glad you did--so will your students!
Thinking of inviting Darleen to your next event? Would you like to see a preview of her speaking?
