In this virtual world, I’m doing more class visits via recorded videos and Zoom. It’s especially fun to have questions from students beforehand to incorporate into the presentation, like in this presentation for Creative Writing classes at Abraham Lincoln High School in Council Bluffs, Iowa:
Teacher Kourtney Abbotts sent this kind note after using the video for her classes:
“What an incredible day of presentations! You have given my students a whole new perspective for writing and poetry. Thank you for your hard work to make this happen. My kids LOVED the airplane and tornado poems because of the comparisons that you make. We have been talking a lot about comparisons to create more detailed thoughts and ideas.
I appreciate your help to advance the efforts of creative writing. Your writing routine of Monday deadlines is something the students really want to add to the class. We are going to use Mondays to turn in a piece they have worked on over the week. 🙂“Kourtney Abbotts, Abraham Lincoln High School in Council Bluffs, Iowa
