TURN STUDENTS INTO AUTHORS AND POETS! CREATE AN ABC BOOK ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL!
For more information about an author visit to your school, please visit my website at bradherzog.com.
The goal of my visits is to GET STUDENTS INVOLVED – capture their attention by discussing subjects that pique their interest and use humor to teach. My message is simple: Writing can take many forms and open doors to adventure. I discuss some of those adventures – tales about serving as a bat boy for a major league baseball team (my first published article), competing in the Masters of Miniature Golf (my favorite story about developing a story idea), and being a contestant on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” in front of 25 million viewers (a lesson in the power of learning through writing). But I focus mostly on various facets of the writing life -- how I became a writer, the importance of reading and research, how I get my ideas, and the book creation process. For my youngest audiences, I recently developed a presentation (also PowerPoint with fun images) in which the students and I create a story together, illustrating how creativity is simply about making choices with your imagination
