Description


Franceska and the Venice Lagoon chronicles the journey of a young American girl as she accidentally stumbles upon illegal activity at the Rialto Fish Market. The setting is Venice Italy.
Franceska and the Venice Lagoon is an alternative learning experience that integrates drama and science content. In Franceska, you can read the story, while picking and choosing what experiments to try, and what new knowledge to explore. Experiments enhance the content that emerges from the narrative.
The overarching theme is sustainability, with lesser themes of illegal fishing and sea level rise.
The story is in two parts. Part one is the adventure itself; Franceska's journey, while part two is a series of experiments, readings, and investigations that support the science content that emerges from the narrative. Links are provided that support the science content and the experiments. They can be found in MyGoogleDrive.
Franceska, like many girls her age are at a turning point in their development. From a limited life view and experience to embracing the broader world and social responsibility.

About the Author


Lovelle Ruggiero is a retired educator from the City School District of New Rochelle, NY. During her tenure of more than four decades in both elementary and middle schools, certain themes have emerged that represent her teaching environment: creating a culturally sensitive teaching and learning environment, broadening the participation of women and girls into the engineering technologies, fisheries, and recirculating aquaculture. And of course, active learning.
Lovelle has a PhD from Capella University. Her dissertation explored the gender balance that was occurring in one of the 12 engineering schools at Cornell University. Franceska is her first novella.
