When life gives you lemons... turn to Twitter. Our sixth grade students were planning on visiting with author Candace Fleming last week at the Erlanger library. However she had to cancel at the last minute due to illness. Ms. Yuenger wanted her students to still have the opportunity to talk with published authors about their best advice for writing, so she sent tweets to several authors asking them to participate in Skype visits. The students were so excited to visit with Geoff Rodkey, Lisa Greenwald, Jackie Dolamore and Stuart Gibbs. The students participated by writing questions, interviewing the authors, and recording their responses. The students are currently writing their own novels during National Novel Writing Month, so they are busy putting all of the wisdom they received to good use.
