9781563087448: Terrific Connections with Authors, Illustrators, and Storytellers: Real Space and Virtual Links (Teacher Ideas Press)

Exciting, productive connections with authors, illustrators, and storytellers are at your fingertips with this resource. Unlike other author visit guides, this book goes beyond nuts-and-bolts planning to how to create the best possible encounters between students and authors. Successful visits in real space and in cyberspace are described, giving you specific ideas of the many ways to connect with and create meaningful links between bookpeople and children. Choosing the right guest, guidelines for successful visits, making curriculum connections, using e-mail to connect with bookpeople, live chats in virtual space, taking advantage of ITB and satellite technology, and using such props as realia and curriculum guides are some of the topics covered. Lists of author/illustrator web pages and managed Internet sites for author interaction are included.

From the Author:

Jane Kurtz and I wrote this book with a single goal in mind, but an enormous one--to ensure that author/illustrator/ storyteller visits were meaningful, successful, and rewarding for everyone involved. As an author and a librarian, Jane and I had each heard our share of horror stories about visits gone awry, where proper preparation and a broader vision could have solved the problems that arose. We listened to those horror stories from our community of writer and librarian friends, and we listened to their success stories as well. Out of those many stories came this book.

From small group visits between an author and a public library storytime group to a schoolwide visit between an illustrator and the entire student body of a middle school to the massive international-and virtual-undertaking, The Read In!, there are fabulous connections going on all over the world. Our job was to explore those connections, to analyze what made them work, and to offer our readers practical advice about how to ensure terrific connections between bookpeople and kids of all ages, from the toddler crowd to graduating seniors, in every possible venue, from real space to cyberspace.

Whether you are a librarian, a teacher, an administrator, a cultural enrichment coordinator, a home-schooling parent, an author, an illustrator, or a storyteller, we believe that this book will help you to make terrific connections a reality! -- Toni Buzzeo
