Attention ALL Educators or prospective teachers and writers interested in publishing your work online:
Doctor Carol Groman from the English dept at South Texas college is working on a curriculum for my novel for young adults to teach an entry level composition 1 class. Her students range from all writing levels from the 8th- 12th grade, so if you are a middle school teacher, you certainly qualify.
She is asking for 4 chapter lessons for the novel for chapters 5-15. You may submit consecutive or random chapters as long as there are four lessons in the submissions. For example, you can chose to submit lessons for chapters 5,6, 7, and 8 or any four random chapters between 5-15 (e.g. 7,10,12, 14). If selected, you will be paid $75 for the approval, and the work will be posted on the novel's website, giving you credit for the work.
Please note that she will edit the material according to her criteria and may use one or all of the lessons submitted. Nevertheless, you will maintain full authorship for the work.
How does she want the lesson? That is entirely up to you as long as the instruction is meaningful (and not busy work), and that part of it also encourages writing. She is looking for innovative and creative people, so they do not have to necessarily be in the teaching profession, but it helps.
A hard copy of the novel may be purchased on Amazon, or you may get the revised Ebook version at the website www.heartofthejaguar.com for $4 less the retail price ($5.95). (Read below for submission guidelines)
This is an excellent opportunity to get some exposure and earn a little extra cash, so why not go for it! Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. Abraham Cowley (read below for submission guidelines)
Best of luck!
