Author’s Visit Learning Objectives

originally posted December 6, 2007

The goal of the project is to introduce students to the process that authors use to write & illustrate a book, as well as engage them in writing activities themselves that mirror this process.

  At the end of the videoconference series students will be able to:
– Use brainstorming and invention techniques to come up with ideas for writing.
– Use a journal to record their observations of places, people, and lists of facts from which they draw to write stories.
– Discriminate between different types of audiences.
– Create a story line.
– Understand character development and create their own characters.
– Understand descriptive techniques in writing and write descriptive paragraphs.
– Create multiple drafts of their work and share them through peer editing.
– Analyze their writing and that of other students.
– Share their work through email with the authors and with each other.
– Evaluate the writing of others and give constructive feedback.
– Revise their writing to conform to the correct standards of English.
