I have done many (many, many) classroom visits, a fun several weeks' elementary school course on writing picture books, two elementary school assemblies that went GREAT, one middle school assembly where they ate me alive (hey, at least I'm honest), and many middle school class visits that went quite well. I've done a few job shadows. Oh, and a parents' night where I even sold some books.
Topics have included:
Reading connections (to self, to text, to world)
Beginning, middle, and end
How to write a picture book
How to spark conversations with your children while reading
Ideas, ideas and more ideas
Writing as a career
Oh my goodness. I have really done SO many topics and would be happy to modify my presentation to accommodate anything you'd like me to cover.
