Author visits to schools

Author visits to schools are great fun all round Рand valuable additions to reading and writing programs for years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The sessions last one to one and a half hours and groups range in size from 20 to 80. Starting point is reading from one chapter of one of the Ducks Crossing adventure stories Рstudents vote on which chapter they want out of a couple of options. The reading gives a basis for discussion of the processes involved in researching, writing, editing, illustrating and publishing a book. The students Рand teachers! Рgo away with a How To Do It: 10 steps to writing your own book. And two students get their own personally autographed copies of the books Рnames drawn out of a hat!
