THE ROOKIE Curriculum Guide

This is a 31-page PDF we are making available for teachers and tutors so that they can use THE ROOKIE as a teaching tool in class.

Created by Sheila Unwin, a teacher with a Master’s of Education in Curriculum Instruction and Design, the curriculum guide gives instruction on how to use the GFL series to engage young readers who might not otherwise connect with typical books choices.

    Come On

    That man is more than Jacked. I think he may have found a way to plug Twitter directly into his brain so we get ALL his random thoughts all the time.

  15. flashman

    He’s SO jacked…

    ==================================
    Neil laughed. "I’m a soldier, not a cop, ma’am."

    MEH-TALLLLLLLL!!!

     

  16. I_AM---

    Looking forward to the next episode. DAMN vein just won’t shut up.

    Speaking of Tweets…..

    How does Hutchins do ANY work?  That man tweets constantly! I mean come on, I don’t care if he’s drinking a Dr Pepper!!! 

  18. flashman

    Brutal…

    Really enjoying this story from the Rookie universe. Matt Wallace is just a plain scary guy!

    ==================================

    MEH-TALLLLLLLL!!!

    Poor Matt…

    The FDO dismisses him…

    Wallace’s Twittering is the least of my concerns …

    And it’s probably not even him. He’s already bitching about his "new podcasting staff." He’s been having other people do his recording dirty work for years, while he sits in his MFA ivory tower, sipping on lattes and writing all day. Then he tapes his printouts to the leg of a unicorn, and watches the rainbow as the creature flies of to the Magic Land of Other People Doing Your Recording and Editing For You.

    So all the Tweets? Probably part of his Twitter Staff. Matt is busy watching Masterpiece Theatre.

    No offense was intended to

    No offense was intended to Wallace and his work.  I was merely pining for the audio effects and such.  So far I love the story.

  22. paul_e_cooley

    Oh it’s on now…

    There’s so much shmack on twitter from Wallace and I can’t believe our honorable FDO hasn’t stepped up to the plate.  Perhaps he’s scared wallace will fly west to beat him.  Or perhaps such things are far below the FDO’s attention.  I think the human will win.  FDO is a very giving emperor and will allow the heathen wallace a moment of success before crushing him. 

    Good series, Scott.  Both you and Wallace are writing GREAT stuff.  Screw the audio quality–it’s the story that counts.

    Keep it going, man.

    We’ll improve quality, but Wallace’s reading stays

    I often say that the stories sound better when the original author reads them. Actors are great and fine and do wonderful things, but when it comes to the nuance of a story you can not top the author — because only the author knows how things are originally supposed to sound.

    We’re working on Matt’s recording quality. He’s new to doing his own reading, and his producer is making the exact same mistakes I did back in the EARTHCORE days.

    However, for the rest of TITLE FIGHT, Matt will continue to read his parts. The only exception could be the final installment, where we might have alternating bits with each character. If that is the case, I’ll read that one. 

  24. Xenophanes

    Dig….

    I’m really loving this story and where it is going.  A few things.

    1.  I love the explanation as to how the Quyth heart works.  Alien yet believable.  Well done.

    2.  Unfortunately the "low one" was referred to as the devil in this episode.  From what I understand the purist nation folks never call the "low one" the devil.

    3.  I would really love to have this story ultimately be rerecorded with Scott reading and all the voice effects put in.

    Sound quality

    Great story so far. But, the sound quality in this episode is poor. Very tinny and lots of static and noise.

  26. Finaldrive

    Wow

    That’s messed up.  AND AMAZING!  Wallace’s character is a nut job. I can’t wait to hear the rest of this story.  

    I can only hope that round 3 will feature The Cutter vs. Meth Pigeon!  Epic.
