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 http://www.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
