Classroom Presentations

Classroom presentations for children - For many years I have been play-acting the experiences of my ancestor Betty Taylor and describing family life, Civil War challenges, and pioneer hardships. I have presented to dozens of classes from kindergarten through high school. I try to get the students involved and thinking. I do these presentations in central Oklahoma. If you would like to invite me to your class, please contact me.

Classroom presentations for student teachers - I have found that my "living history" presentations draw the attention of students and stimulate their minds. I also find that they remember more of what I show than what I tell. I have tried to pass this on to teachers-in-training in the college classroom so that they might broaden their vision and add to their bag of effective teaching tools. I do these presentations in central Oklahoma.
