Author School Visits
What I do at school visits
Inviting me to do an author visit at your school can inspire your students to read more and write their own stories. The following are some of the presentations that I can do when I visit your school:
Story Creation Fun: How to Write and Create Stories
I give an interactive presentation that explores the fun and exciting world of books, while teaching students how to write and create their own stories using plot, characters, and setting. I'll also ready from my book, OLD MACDONALD HAD A DRAGON. If there's time I can also read from my book COW CAN'T SLEEP (About 45-50 minutes).
The Exciting World of Books: From Superheroes to Galaxies Far, Far Away
I take students on an interactive tour of the fun and exciting world of books. I help students discover how books let them become anyone they want and can take them anywhere they want to go in their imagination. To give students a taste for the adventure that books can take them on, I also read snippets from a variety of different children's books, as well as my book OLD MACDONALD HAD A DRAGON. If there's time I can also read from my book COW CAN'T SLEEP (About 45-50 minutes).
Beginnings, Middles, Endings: Creating a Full Circle Story
Hands-on workshop that explores the keys to writing strong beginnings, middles, and endings, and then tying them all together into a cohesive and powerful story. Applicable to all genres of fiction writing (2 to 3 hours, depending on specific needs).
From Creative Writing to the Sciences: Leveraging Children's Literature in Lesson Plans
Geared toward teacher in-service and other educator conferences, I present a unique perspective on how you can leverage your favorite children's books to play a critical educational and entertaining role in your lesson plan development for a wide spectrum of curriculum topics. (About 45-50 minutes).
I'm open to giving other presentation topics that meet the specific requirements of your event. Please contact me for more information.Read what teachers and others say about my school visits and presentations
