From Keith, regarding submissions:
While How to Teach a Novel is not meant to serve as a review site, I frequently make resource recommendations to teachers, homeschoolers, parents, and tutors interested in this approach, through both this website and the frequent workshops I present. I would be happy to consider your submissions (sites, publications, services) for review. Please email me. I review all submissions according to Grandma’s rule: If I can’t say anything nice, I won’t say anything at all. Please read my Disclosure Statement additional information.

If you are a publisher of books for children or young adults, please visit Teach with Picture Books for submission information. Again, please read the Disclosure Statement at that site.
