Doctor Hero’s Day At Your School:

Doctor Hero’s visit to your school
will inspire the kids to:

  • Read and Write (Language Arts), and
  • Find their super power…
    so they can change the world!
    (Social & Emotional Learning.)

A one-day visit includes

three 50-minute presentations,
which may be
customized to meet the school’s needs.

The school can choose between assemblies and
writing 
workshops for its three sessions.

Doctor Hero does a combination of
highly interactive, large group assemblies followed by
classroom visits or hands-on writing workshops.

By the end of these sessions, students will walk away with
specific writing strategies that they can apply immediately.

The Author Assembly includes:

  • A blend of  social and emotional learning,
    superhero fun, and pro-literacy
  • Storytelling from one of Bolaji’s books,
  • Audiovisual presentation about Doctor Hero’s origin story
  • Encouragement to read, and write.
  • Superhero trivia,
  • An official School Kindness Challenge, and
  • Question-and-answer session with the kids

 

Age-Specific Content:
Although the basic presentation remains similar,
Doctor Hero will alter it for different grades to be age-specific.

Book Signings:
For those students and staff purchasing books,
Doctor Hero will gladly autograph them
on the day of the visit,
separate from the presentations.
