Visiting Author – Day #1

10 Feb

Monday marked our first day of Book Week. Students in the B and D Block L.A. classes had a one hour session with our visiting author and illustrator, Lauren Stringer, and created poems, thumbnail sketches, and a storyboard for a simple booklet she called a ‘dummy book.” This is what she sends to her publisher in the beginning stages of the writing or illustration process. Students also learned about such things as pagination, or the process of dividing important content into pages.  All students also attended an assembly and had time to ask Ms. Stringer questions. G and H Block L.A. classes will work with our visiting author and illustrator today.

Please share a poem you wrote or take a photo of your work. You can share it in the comment section here and/or on your e-portfolio.

        Ms. Mac is the 7th Grade Language Arts teacher. Ms. Mac was with your H Block LA class when we went to the BBT for a class with Ms. Stringer.
