Projects with Publishing/prepress

Writing research

Researched relevant academic research articles, edited the articles for a teacher audience, wrote chapter introductions, and found appropriate cartoons. Second edition: added more articles about the Common Core State Standards and new achievement tests. For both editions, served as the editor through the page production process.

Facilitators’ guides

I researched, wrote, and produced two Facilitators’ Guides for publications written and illustrated by incarcerated youth; these were designed for use in at-risk youth programs and classrooms.

Language arts database

I created and managed ZBLASt, a FIleMaker database housing all states’ language arts standards used for correlations, product development, and marketing.
