Author Louis P. Ianniello provides a handy tool for teachers and students as he brings a refreshing twist to learning the different species of birds in From My Bronx Backyard: The Birds: An educational guide for teachers and students, his new book released through Xlirbis.
The first in a series of books, From My Bronx Backyard: The Birds is designed to help teachers and students gain a better understanding and appreciation of the immediate world around them. While many nature books and science textbooks deal with far-off, exotic places, this book deals with what can be realistically seen and studied. Included are anecdotes of the different birds that will help students and teachers familiarize themselves with the diversity of the avian world around them; photographs, taken by the author, which reflect a levelheaded approach to backyard study; and activities that address a multidisciplinary approach to instruction, without all of the requisite jargon of other teacher activity books.
Teaching science does not have to be a chore—it can be done in a myriad of ways. Backed with in-depth research, profound discussion, visual images, and interactive exercises, From My Bronx Backyard: The Birds: An educational guide for teachers and students brings urban ecological studies into the home and classroom with easy-to-read information.
