Our Nonfiction Minute writers are joining teachers and students across the US for a winter holiday break. We won't be posting during the holiday, but we will still be thinking and writing. Watch for us to resume on January 2nd with a post on how the first of January got to be the start of the new year.
If you'd like to browse through our archives as you plan themes for the new year, use the column at the right. You can search by author and topic, but you can also browse through the Minutes by month. Just scroll down to the bottom of the column and pick a month.
And, if you have some time, you may want to take a look at the Transfer2Teachers tabs. There are some good ideas on how to work with Minutes in the classroom. And, if you would like to receive notice from time to time of new books and news from our authors use the Schedule Sign-up tab.
Read Karen Sterling's story of how she got involved with iNK. Maybe it will inspire you.
We always welcome your comments and suggestions. Just hit the comment button at the upper right to tell us what you think or to offer your suggestions about our postings.
May you enjoy every Minute of your holiday!
We're collaborating with the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration to produce a LIVE STREAMING EVENT:
Ever wonder how an idea becomes a book? How does an author gather information, decide what goes in book or what doesn't and when it is complete? Get your answers straight from award-winning nonfiction author Carla Killough McClafferty. Join Carla on December 14th at 11:00 am EST see her live, face-to-face in our amazing Zoom Room! This is using technology for a personal connection! All you need is a computer, wifi and a screen and projector. We supply the virtual meeting place. Read more about it and sign up here.
Are you starting to notice the difference in the voices of the authors of the Nonfiction Minutes? Are you getting the idea that we are a passionate bunch of people with wide interests? Do you think you could recognize an author even if you didn't know who wrote a Minute?
How about bringing your favorite author to your school to answer questions about his or her MInutes? You can find out how through the Center of Interactive Learning and Collaboration. If you're a teacher it costs nothing to join and there are lots of other content providers listed whom you may find interesting. If you look at the drop-down list of providers, you'll see us under Authors on Call/iNK Think Tank. But here's the link for you to bring us to your school and talk to many classrooms in one visit through our fabulous Zoom Room. All you need is WiFi and a white board or projector and screen.
