Natasha uploads her manuscripts for your students to get sneak peeks and send her feedback. Later, when the story is published, they’ll see where she was able to use their suggestions. More importantly, teachers can use the Work-In-Progress to emphasize to students the importance of second and third drafts, and to show students that all writers make mistakes that need polishing.
Components of the WIR Program
For The Classroom
Here’s an example of one of the bi-weekly videos where Natasha engages your students with reading and writing tips, and book talks to send them to the ebook collection. These videos are exclusive to the Writer-In-Residence program. Teachers can access them when convenient for their schedules.
School Discussion Boards
The School Discussion Boards provide an open forum for students, teachers and parents to engage with Natasha on all aspects of literacy.
