About the Book

About the Book

Learning on the School Bus: A Reading Comprehension and Creative Writing Workbook for Secondary Students provides unique reading comprehension and creative writing opportunities about learning outside the classroom. The author, Keshia L. Gaines, Ph.D., offers ground-breaking techniques to expand areas for learning opportunities. According to Dr. Gaines, students should learn from academic content on the school bus and other unique learning areas (the bus stop, cafeteria, playgrounds, bathrooms, academic clothing, etc.) Since students are not meeting academic expectations in the general classroom, it is important to consider all methods and areas for students to learn.

The vocabulary words from each chapter’s word review are in bold lettering once within the chapter. In addition, a few QR Codes (Quick Response Codes) will be featured throughout the workbook. These QR Codes will take you directly to a web page when scanned by a smartphone with a QR Code app.

Audience and Purpose

This workbook’s purpose is to provide students with an interesting and educational learning experience.
