FAQ for Educators
Do you have any teacher guides?
Yes. I have developed teacher guides for the
presentations as well as for the books themselves. You can click on the
Resources tab on the left and you will see a button that says
teacher's guides those are
for the books, and
presentation guides are for the presentations. The presentation
guides include curriculum applications.
How much do you charge?
My prices vary.
For Skype presentations or book discussions I charge a
flat $150 U.S.D. for a one hour presentation
For school visits to the U.S. the host school needs to
cover all transportation costs, hotel, per diem ($70/day) and the price
for the presentations $1000/day
For school visits within Ontario please contact
Prologue to the Performing Arts
Is there anything I
should know before you arrive in terms of hosting you?
Please see my articles on
Islamic Etiquette and hosting
What are your technical
Mostly all I need for a presentation is a long table
to display my books, a chair and a glass of water. The only presentation
that requires an LCD/Data projector and screen is my The Roses in My
Carpets presentation. That presentation includes a visual tour of the
Afghan refugee camp I visited in Peshawar 1992.
Although for larger groups I may need a projector.
What is your audience
My ideal audience size is about a hundred. For
workshops it's a bit smaller ~60
I can do larger audiences though of up to 300, but I
would need to adjust the presentation accordingly.
I find the audiences of one hundred ideal because you
can still have a personal connection with each child in attendance.
How Do I order your
