James Ventrillo. - 4/2 - author RICK& BOBO James is the author of RICK & BOBO. It is about a hilarious superhero and his brother and their brilliant female super villain. James will talk about the writing of the novel and the three others that are in various stages of completion about the further adventures of the brothers. I reviewed his book and believed it was perfect for anyone above the fourth grade. Once people read this they will want it to become a movie. James and I will discuss how to take his novel and use it to teach students how to create their own questions. This is a valuable alternative to answering questions at the end of a chapter that kids enjoy. You’ll be able to use this technique the next day. Another beauty of this technique is teaching students how to create questions gives them the understanding that helps them answer even standardized test questions. Your students will test better. More importantly, they will be clearer thinkers. Any time remaining I will talk about my 2009 book, ABUSES of POWER in EDUCATION: Challenging Practically Everything. This is a brutal book, but it needs to be told about how EVERYONE from students to superintendents abuse their power. It’s not complaining, but gives solutions to common abuses.
