About the Book Learning on the School Bus: A Reading Comprehension and Creative Writing Workbook for Secondary Students provides unique reading comprehension and creative writing opportunities about learning outside the classroom. The author, Keshia L. Gaines, Ph.D., offers ground-breaking techniques to expand areas for learning opportunities. According to Dr. Gaines, students should learn from academic content on the school bus and other unique learning areas (the bus stop, cafeteria, playgrounds, bathrooms, academic clothing, etc.) Since students are not meeting academic expectations in the general classroom, it is important to consider all methods and areas for students to learn. The vocabulary words from each chapter’s word review are in bold lettering once within the chapter. In addition, a few QR Codes (Quick Response Codes) will be featured throughout the workbook. These QR Codes will take you directly to a web page when scanned by a smartphone with a QR Code app. Audience and Purpose This workbook is designed for use in various secondary classrooms and for general use by anyone who would like to complete reading comprehension and creative writing activities about the Bus-stop 2 Bus-stopTM method and learning outside the classroom. Learning on the School Bus is also appropriate for other academic courses because of its discussion questions, journal activities, informative graphics, vocabulary words, critical thinking areas, and more.

This is a companion to The Creative Writing Handbook - now in its second edition. It is very much aimed at the individual writer, based on the idea that real writing comes from within and that writing is a craft, skill with determination, art with attitude. The book is filled with useful ideas and inspiring techniques for exploring and exploiting resources available, both within and without. It focuses on three major areas - the writer's roots (family, class and gender), the writer's resources (memory and language) and the writer's art (form and technique). Chapters focus on many topics, including how memory shapes a writer's material, the pro-creative force of words and the ambiguities of art and artfulness. Many examples of established writers' works are cited to give the fledgling writer much practical help.
