Elementary Schools: In-Person or Virtual
Depending on where your school is located, SuperBrady can be hired to do an Author Visit or a simple Meet-and-Greet, both in-person or virtual. Free material, for teachers to share with students before and after the assembly, is shared below. (Individual copies of SuperBrady’s book are available through Amazon but if your school would like to buy SuperBrady books in bulk to distribute to your students, special pricing is available.)
If you are interested in hiring Brady for an In-person or Zoom Author Assembly, a scaled-back Meet-and-Greet, and/or bulk book pricing, please reach out to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Individual copies of SuperBrady’s book can be purchased via Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/dp/0990784037.
A SuperBrady Author Assembly consists of SuperBrady arriving in his signature “B” shirt and red cape. Brady reads his book displayed as a presentation on a smart board. Then along with a sidekick (sibling or mom), they educate the students about inclusion, how to see people are more alike than different, and share SuperBrady’s tips on how anyone can become a Superhero of Inclusion. They then open it up to student questions. Alternatively, a Meet-and-Greet, in-person or virtual, would entail the teachers reading SuperBrady’s book to their classes prior to the visit, and then the assembly would focus on the Q and A between SuperBrady and the students.
This is a great experience for children to meet an accomplished author with Down syndrome who can share his achievements and from first-hand experience explain to the students the importance of making everyone feel included.
SuperBrady’s Author Assemblies work best for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, though children of all elementary school ages have enjoyed meeting SuperBrady.
Professional development Zoom presentations for teachers about inclusion in the classroom, conducted by Brady and his mom, are also available.
