We're collaborating with the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration to produce a LIVE STREAMING EVENT:
Nonfiction author Carla Killough McClafferty has written books on a wide variety of topics and each one has a back story of how it came to be. Your students can join McClafferty as she shares with them the details only authors know. Hear about visiting the Radium Institute in Paris to research Marie Curie, how she came to know people who were rescued from the Nazi’s by an American Holocaust rescuer, how George Washington came to life for her while staying on the grounds of Mount Vernon, and how she interviewed the world’s experts on the topic of concussions. This live streaming event is a chance for students to learn stories not found on shelves.
Date: December 14, 2017, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST (adjust for your time zone). (Registration Deadline: 12/14/2017)
This is a live streaming event. A link will be sent to teachers as the event approaches. There is a chat function that you and your students will be able to use to ask questions.
