All of the lessons are free and can be used in conjunction with Sirens in Her Belly or as independent lessons. I do not receive any monetary compensation for the content. One of the mottos of the Writing Project is Teachers Teaching Teachers where we share our resources and lessons to strengthen each other.
Along with Mrs. Vallone-Visconti, I owe thanks to other educators who have invited and continue to invite me into classrooms to talk with students about social justice, empathy, self-protection and community.
A special shout out to my longtime colleague, Stephanie Liggins, for inviting me to come talk to your students in the continuation high school; this was a memory I will always treasure.
