Livingston, NJ (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
Award winning educator and Reagan Scholar, Dr. Daniel Barth advocates Common Core Standards and an interdisciplinary approach to teaching. He is the author of The Maurice Series, an ongoing science fiction adventure series that has educational value to young students. The first ebook of the series, Maurice on the Moon, is available for free on the Kindle and other tablets (via Kindle app) from June 12th to June 13th.
The Maurice Series is an educational resource that is aligned to an interdisciplinary style of teaching. Not only is each ebook written in a clear and easily absorbable way, but also abundant in real space science information. Educators can use The Maurice Series in a myriad of ways to teach different topics; a literary discussion on the book’s setting can lead to what the lunar surface and environment is like, while a character analysis can challenge students to learn more about space travel.
An interdisciplinary approach to teaching is a critical part of what the leaders of Common Core Standards are pushing for. As an advocate of Common Core Standards for over 25 years, Dr. Barth has crafted The Maurice Series to be a useful resource for all educators who align their teaching strategies to Common Core. The Maurice Series is currently used in many schools’ curricula throughout the country and in several locations internationally.
Dr. Barth and his publishing partner company, Funderstanding, hope that this 3-day promotional event will help Maurice on the Moon get into the hands of more educators, parents, and kids: sparking a desire to learn within students through a progressive style of teaching by educators.
Maurice on the Moon is also available for schools in paperback, which has an extensive glossary for educational purposes.
