More About the Author

I love to help connect kids to science through story. I've written 17 books, several video scripts, and award-winning articles for Highlights for Children, Cricket, Read, and other magazines, as well as some short SF stories. I use The Deep Time Diaries and Teaching Science Fact with Science Fiction, to create middle school enrichment material in English and science with the help of master teacher, Vicky Jordan. I illustrate much of my own work and also create natural history and biomedical illustrations for a variety of clients. I enjoy writing adult science columns for The North Forty News and Colorado Gardener magazine, as well as "Kid's Quarry" columns for Trilobite Tales, the official newsletter of the Western Interior Paleontological Society.

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Michael Valdivielso on September 12, 2006
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Teaching Science Fact with Science Fiction by Gary Raham is a book full of basic lesson plans for teachers on how to use science fiction in different ways in different grades. There is an overview of 500 years of science fiction, detailed ideas for teaching physical, earth, space, and life sciences, and tons of fun activities. Fun activities that should also make students think.

Teachers should find it perfect for them. Other readers might find it a tad boring but it has great reference lists if you want to find good science fiction novels or good books on science.
