Get the leading-edge STEM, Common Core, fun fiction-based curriculum developed by Tracy Tokunaga for $49.99.

Would you like your students to engage easily in reading STEM material that combines literacy with science? With this curriculum, get kids excited about STEM! And satisfy your Common Core requirements!

Check out this new combo of action-packed novel with science extensions.

We have a novel that middle schoolers actually LOVE to read and teachers appreciate the easy discussion starters in science. In the backdrop of chasing drones, attack helicopters and fighter jets, the gripping, nonstop adventure captivates even the most reticent student. All types love this book.

Tracy Tokunaga developed the course because her students didn’t want to stop reading Circle, and the intro to petroleum, climate, chemistry, physics, genetic engineering, aviation, astronomy and Earth-sciences fascinated them. Several classes have finished the curriculum and as a result, many have rocketed into a STEM path. The fun projects created with a Common Core basis will even intrigue you. See what students are saying about Circle below. (STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)

In Circle, 14-year-old Spencer discovers an extra-terrestrial girl hiding out, living in his house. Mandy is lost and alone after her jet crashed and the pilot was captured. She asks Spencer to rescue the pilot from Edwards Air Force Base and help them get home with the one thing their civilization needs to survive. But once he finds out what they are after, his family falls into crisis. Can he still help her?

One of the BEST BOOKS I’ve EVER READ! J. Warren
My 11 year old daughter read the book in just a few days and said it was one of the BEST BOOKS she’s EVER read! (She also loved all the Lord of the Rings books, as well as all the Series of Unfortunate Events).

WOW! Blew me away!!T. Devito
Reading Circle brought me back to my childhood! It was wonderful. I didn’t want to put it down. Normally I’m very analytical and rational, but Syd brought me back to a world of possibility, idealism, and excitement! … (Read more on Amazon.com.)

T. Heany
This book is a lot of fun. It is aimed at the teen-age crowd without being puerile. It is action packed without being melodramatic. The book starts off with a very fast plot and grows more suspenseful as the book progresses. It’s a great read.

14-year-old Austin S.’s Mom wrote that, “Austin declared Circle his favorite book of all time — even better than Twilight.”

Don’t worry — It’s “clean” – G-rated.

    I’m halfway through the book…I know the kids will LOVE it so far!! I just downloaded the curriculum, and I can’t wait. The theme in my class for the year is …Human Impact on the Environment for the 1st semester and Human Impact on Society and Relationships in the 2nd semester…so it totally fits in…CAN’T WAIT!!! I’m excited to read it and fit it in to my curriculum, Teri

    Amazing job of integrating real world issues into a beautiful story that captivates today’s teens. The creative use of storytelling will open up the world of Earth Space Science –Environmental Science and Genetic Engineering to future generations…

    I personally, think this book is fantastic and there are a lot of projects and interactive lessons that can come from the readings. Now, when we are finished for the day the students moan and want to read more. The book inspired us to do a multi classroom project where we had other classes come visit us during our Amazing Race week a couple weeks ago. Groups of students created something that flew by using recyclable materials (2-liter bottles, water bottles, cardboard, paper, etc). Each group had 5 min to create this flying object and take them outside to see how far they could fly (with the idea of getting the flying object back to Circle). It was very interactive, hands on, and was a hit by many students.

Have enjoyable with the remaining portion with the new year. You might be performing a splendid job.

    Students have shown great enthusiasm towards the book itself and the curriculum. It has helped keep them engaged and eager to continue reading.
    The curriculum helps the students engage in discussions involving our environment and they have shown interest in how and what things biodegrade. The vocabulary at the beginning of each chapter has improved students’ comprehension.
