Nonfiction Writing

Guides and pamphlets

Sometimes I write guides and pamphlets for my employers, social justice groups, or nonprofit organizations. Below are guides I created either for AmeriCorps Vista (2015) or for social justice groups in town. I blacked out information that was specific to AmeriCorps, but all other guides are written to be used in any setting.


Below are several presentations I presented and researched.

Educational materials

I wrote the First and Second Grade Editions of the Math Adventures: A Math Engagement Program for Iowa Public Television during my 2014-2015 AmeriCorps Year. This includes the main editions as well as the Big Buddy Guides. You can find the following pdfs at the website below.

  • I did the layout of the pages and wrote all of the content.
  • Jeff Horn, one of the Graphic Designers for IPTV, did the Header graphic.
  • Educational Services Department and Communication Department staff members assisted with the editing of the documents; this includes: Stacie S., Trista P., and Elizabeth _.
  • The alignment with the Iowa Core for Mathematics was assessed by Instructional Designer, Ginger P., and by the Department of Education Iowa Core Math Consultant.
  • Math Adventures: 1st and 2nd Grade Editions
