School Visits

School Visits

Let me talk with your students about my writing process — from brainstorm to book.

  • Where do my topics come from?
  • How do I research?
  • How does a blank page turn into a finished product?
  • As I edit, what stays in and gets polished and what gets excluded?

My favorite audiences are 2nd to 6th graders — 1-3 classes at a time for a 45-60 minute session.

Presentations can be designed to include any of these:

  • Reading my latest book: Helen Thayer’s Arctic Adventure or any of my 50 others
  • Revealing my writing process and answering curious questions
  • Conducting an activity to get students started on choosing their own topics and doing research
  • Focusing on critical ELA standards, including Craft and Structure, Key Ideas and Details, and Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
