This is a teacher's guide for the book Parrots Over Puerto Rico by Susan L. Roth, Cindy Trumbore. In this compelling book, Roth and Trumbore recount the efforts of the scientists of the Puerto Rican Parrot Recovery Program to save the parrots and ensure their future. Woven into the parrots’ story is a brief history of Puerto Rico itself, from before the first human settlers to the present day. The educator's guide includes a book summary, background, discussion questions, vocabulary, reader-response and other writing prompts, ELL support, and interdisciplinary activities.
