The National Day on Writing takes place on October 20th and the folks at WeAreTeachers and Zaner-Bloser are hosting a special event for students in grades 3-5. New York Times Notable author Kate Messner will virtually visit classrooms through a special Google Hangout.
Virtual Visit with Author
As part of Kate Messner’s visit, students will learn about the writing process from the perspective of a published author. Students will see how the writing process they go through in school — brainstorming, researching, planning, drafting and editing– is similar to the steps taken by this well-known children’s author.
Kate Messner will share how authors, editors, copyeditors and illustrators work as a team to publish a book. Students will have an opportunity to ask the author live questions during this completely free, special event. Teachers can also download free pre- and post-event activities to extend their students’ learning.
