Hello Teachers.

For this week’s classroom video, I was looking for a fun way to connect with your students at the beginning of our Writer-In-Residence program. If you have time, after sharing it with your students, perhaps a discussion might be on how some of their favorite stories have made them feel — whether the story was delivered through movie or book. Also, ask your students if they agree that writing is just a delivery system and discuss how their skills with that delivery system matter to them as grownups.

Also, I thought I’d post this video here to talk to you about the Writer In Residence program. If you think parts of it are cheesy, I agree!
