popular school presentations

Wednesday, 5 December 2012

Due to book deadlines, Tania is not available for school visits until further notice. Storytime Readings are possible, depending on date and time.

I offer storytime readings and presentations for children from pre-school to year six. I am unable to custom-design workshops and presentations for students.

For current rates, email here. I can offer discounts for more than one session in any one day, and I offer a copy of one of my Riley the Little Aviator books to schools willing to host a book signing (either in-house or by order form). I can also speak to very large groups at once, if adequate audio visual equipment can be provided (there is no increase in fee for large groups).

I have a current Working with Vulnerable People card, and $10 million in Public Liability Insurance. See here for more details on school visits, along with requirements.

Storytime Readings 

Storytime Readings run for:
P to K - 20 minutes
Years 1 to 6 - 30 minutes
For large groups, I can project the book's pages via a Power Point presentation.

School Presentations

The following presentations have been very popular with schools. Each session runs for 45 minutes, including a short Q&A session, though all presentations can be shortened or lengthened to suit.


I LOVE BOOKS

Presentation Type: Class or Group (size unlimited) – Power Point Presentation

Age groups: suitable for grades 3 - 6

Presentation Overview: This fun, funny and highly interactive presentation takes children through the many and varied styles of children's books, as well as the behind-the-scenes work that goes into books. I discuss book styles, genres, target markets, readership, creators, drafts, typography, inspiration, processes, ideas, and also show kids the way An Aussie Year was formed and eventually published. 40 minutes duration plus 10 minutes for questions.





Presentation Type: Class or Group (size unlimited) – Interactive Book Reading and Powerpoint Presentation

Age groups: suitable for grades 1 - 6

Presentation Overview: This presentation takes kids through new release picture book Tottie and Dot, and then takes them on a visual journey through the production of this book, with a particular focus on the illustrations, the working relationship between author and illustrator and how pictures work to complement text, and vice versa. Fascinating for opening wide the picture book creation process. There are two versions of this presentation – one for key stage I kids, and one for key stage II, which features more intricate detail.

Presentation Type: Class or Group (size unlimited) – Interactive Book Reading and Powerpoint Presentation

Age groups: suitable for grades 3 - 6

Presentation Overview: An interactive PowerPoint presentation showcasing the creation of this unique multimedia book which features photos of three local children who enter the pages of a book to view and interact with historic botanical paintings from the National Library’s Digital Collection. Students will also learn about our native flora and how to protect its future. Would suit key stage II children.

Presentation Type: Class or Group (size unlimited) – Interactive Book Reading and Powerpoint Presentation

Age groups: suitable for grades K - 6

Presentation Overview: An interactive Book Reading of the latest Riley the Little Aviator picture book – a pictorial journey around Canberra.

Presentation Type: Class or Group (size unlimited) – Interactive Book Reading and Power Point Presentation

Age groups: suitable for grades 1 - 6

Presentation Overview: An interactive Book Reading and presentation of An Aussie Year: twelve months in the life of Australian kids – a trip thought the year with five adorable Australian kids, celebrating our diversely beautiful country and multicultural childhood.

Presentation Type: Class or Group (size unlimited) – Power Point Presentation and Interactive Timeline

Age groups: suitable for grades 3 - 6

Presentation Overview: This presentation first covers the creation of Australian Story from concept through research, photo sourcing, editing, layout and design. It then takes students through key historical points in Australia's history and ends with students creating a human timeline using props from the key points already discussed. This presentation has been an enormous hit with kids, and does indeed prove that history is far from boring. Duration is usually 45 minutes, though can run to 55 minutes.
