About Robert

I have more than 25 years of experience as a Library Media Specialist teaching research, study skills, grammar, reading, and use of technology from elite Connecticut schools that are among the very best in our nation. Critical thinking and problem solving skills are an integral part of my instruction in the research process, especially in the reading of informational text and to teach students how to paraphrase what they have read. I ask the students to verbalize to me succinctly what they have read and to write a draft. Brainstorming with visual organizers is part of my instruction. I have taught extensively the search process for information from task initiation, information seeking strategies, selection of resources or media, use of information, and evaluation application of information. I teach sentence construction, appropriate use of vocabulary in context, and how to develop a coherent research paper. I also teach study skills and how to organize homework. I teach reading to elementary school students phonics and reading comprehension through story maps, K - W - L Chart, and other means. I am also a Special Education teacher who has taught children with autism as well as children with special needs. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in English, a minor in History, and three Library Science degrees. I have a degree in Special Education.

Creative writing, persuasive writing, argumentative essays and paraphrasing text is my expertise.
