Menlo Students FlickrWhat will the students come up with? Next week is the first session of Patricia McKissack’s Creative Writing series where the author and participating students interact with one another over videoconference. The students received a copy of Pat’s new book, Stitchin’ and Pullin’ so I’m sure that will be a topic of discussion!

Based on her previous dicussion with their teacher, she’ll assign the students a writing exercise that they are to complete by the final videoconference, which will be December 16- allowing them plenty of time to work. In the final videoconference, the kids will share their work with Pat and their peers, waiting to hear feedback.
