Historical Fiction/Biography Writing Videoconferences coming up!!

January 16, 2008

St. Louis author Patricia McKissack teaches students how to write. During hands-on and highly interactive sessions, students discuss plot, themes, character development and more. In a series of three videoconferences, Ms.McKissack customizes for any grade level and any part of the writing process. In the first videoconference, the author meets with the teachers to discuss the goals of the author visit and what books they would like her to present. In the second, the author dialogs with students, and in the third videoconference she gives feedback to students about the writing and illustrations the students have done. This series can be for elementary, middle or high school students. Teachers, interested? Contact Rebecca.

Cost for the series of three videoconferences is $500. The first videoconference is always at 4:00 pm CT, and the last two are at 9:30 or 11:00 am. Student videoconferences last for an hour.
