Teachers: Let’s get the conversation started!

How would you like to see your students become more engaged in class?

How great would it be if your students had something to say when you asked a question? That they were excited about the curriculum. Maybe, that they truly began thinking about what they were doing and saying.

They could be. With BeakSpeak, this fun, educational story brings to light social situations, moral bias and addresses bullying – all by focusing on the fact that ‘chickens’ should be more specific when communicating.

This is a perfect book for teachers and home-school parents to present to their classes and students. As the students read through the pages, the enclosed questions can be asked directly after reading that page or at the end of the story. It is designed to get the conversation started. Raise questions they wouldn’t have thought to ask and explain how important proper communication is.

My goal is to enhance critical thinking skills, build confidence and social awareness, and demonstrate how kindness defeats bullying.

BeakSpeak is a labor of love: love for teaching, love for children, and love for tolerance. — Danette Bermea, English Teacher at Comal ISD, Texas

I am excited about this book. There is a real need for something like this in our schools. Our youth don’t know have the critical thinking skills they need to benefit themselves in their adult lives, and they aren’t being taught this in schools. We need to teach them the proper way to communicate, otherwise, we’ll lose that skill forever.
