Author Carolyn Lesser connected today and will connect Friday to Linda Altoonian’s writing class in Arlington, Texas. Topic: global warming. Carolyn and Linda have videoconferenced together, through CSD, for several years now and have formed a great friendship.
Carolyn has customized a series of videoconferences for Linda, talking about global warming, in the form of a press conference. Students will ask Carolyn a series of questions and from that interview process write an article, which they will then share with Carolyn on Friday, for her critique. Carolyn takes a great deal of time to research any topic she will present on, and I saw the files she brought in for this presentation. She has traveled extensively and has experiences in many of the places she talks about. The students better be ready for a wealth of information! I’ll let you know what Carolyn says about the videoconferences. If this is something you are interested in for your class, contact me at email@example.com and we’ll get you connected, too.
