Author Amy E. Sklansky connected to first grade students in Stone Harbor, New Jersey for her interactive videoconference Cooking a Book. Into her cooking pot she added inspiration, drafts, revisions, pencil sketches, plus more as she explained to the participating students how an author’s idea becomes a published book this morning.
This is one of Amy’s most popular programs through New Links. Cooking a Book is for younger students; she has a new version of the videoconference for older elementary students called From Inspiration to Bookstore Shelf. To participate in any of Amy’s videoconferences (she also connects via Skype), contact Cooperating School Districts.
