      If you want to go as far as see how teachers in HISD
      have to support what they are teaching in their lesson plans
      you might be able to access the information at www.houstonisd.org

      It sounds like you have your own really great less formal ideas though.
      How about a list of links to groups kids can get involved with to help?
      Maybe instructions with a form for how to start a petition or letter writing
      Teachers love letter-writing and anything with organizational skills...
      Whereas I [art teacher / activist] would like to see more kinesthetic
      such as putting on a puppet show and getting media attention to it...

      Subject: [scbwi-houston] Creating a Teacher/Rading Group kit


      I want to create a teacher/reading group kit and would like your input on
      ways that I might be able to do this. I have a list of book discussion
      questions that are included at the back of my book (a teen novel) that I can
      include but I'd like to have a few more items. I'm looking for things that
      would help a teacher, homeschooler, or even an organization or bookstore.

      Although my teen novel is a romance, the main thread deals with student's
      stepping out and taking a form of civic action, in this case they take up an
      environmental cause. Instead of the usual website, I'm constructing one
      called TeensTakeAction.com that focuses on the idea of kids mamking a
      difference in their nieghborhood, city, nation and world. I'll be running a
      contest during the entire 2005 year. I plan to post stories of kids who've
      identified a problem and taken action and made some kind of difference. What
      I want to do is create a kit that can be ordered that will have the book and
      several items to help do a lesson plan, an organization meeting, assist in
      gaining a girl scout or brownie, etc. badge, a book club, etc. I plan to see
      if there's a way to make some items downloadble from the website, too.

      Any thoughts? Thanks in advance,
