I took on the role of host last night for the first Video Chat for the Write Out project now underway. Along with some facilitators and participants who have been sharing work and planning/hosting live events, we invited Catherine Stier, author of the picture book If I Were a Park Ranger. Our conversation touched on a lot of topics, from uncovering stories of places, to the role of National Parks in society, to primary source databases, to how we might inspire ourselves and our students to write.
Tomorrow night (Thursday) is the first Twitter Chat, starting at 7 p.m. EST with the #writeout hashtag. Come join in further conversation on the topic of “discovering stories.” More information about Write Out and live events is available at the website.
Peace (talking it through),
