A Sampling of Some of the Pages and Modules Found Inside the Elanora and the Salt Marsh Mystery Study Guide for Teachers and Parents

Why did you write a study guide for Elanora and the Salt Marsh Mystery?

Initial reviews for the book included comments that there was a lot to “unpack.” The more I thought about it, the more I knew that students would benefit from the messages found inside.

What are some of these messages?

Some of the messages include the impact of bullying, the resistance to diversity, and the ecological destruction of important wetland habitats.

What are the targeted ages for the guide?

I targeted 4th, 5th, and 6th graders, which would translate to the ages of 9 to 13. However, students older than 13 and younger than 9 may find some of the modules to be of interest.

Can parents use the guide for their children?

Yes! The guide is perfect for parents who prefer to either teach their children at home or supplement classroom studies.

The back of the guide mentions Florida State Standards. Is this guide meant for only students and parents in Florida?

Absolutely not! Many of the modules are not Florida specific, and teachers and parents will find the ones that do involve concepts that teach about Florida wetlands to be of interest to their students no matter where they live.

Must the student read the whole book before the modules are presented?

The study guide is divided into two sections: those modules that should be completed after reading the book and those that can be completed before reading the book.

What is your favorite module?

I love all of them, but I had a blast creating “You as Deputy Planning Chief.” There are lots of math and science concepts in it, and the additional hard skills taught include essay writing, report writing, and summarizing.

Where can we find the study guide?

It’s now available on Amazon.com.
