|Features:||I tailor sessions to the needs and age level of each group. Sessions are interactive and lively. I bring in notes, photographs, illustrations, rough drafts, galleys, and finished books and encourage students to ask questions. We explore ways to find ideas, conduct research, and write clearly. We pick a topic that interests the class then explore possible research sources and look at organization and writing techniques.|
