"One 5th grader was so excited that he was almost shaking!
Your presentation for all the different levels was great --
we love when an author works for everyone."
Since my work includes picture books as well as complex nonfiction for older readers, I'm able to adapt my presentations for a wide range of age levels. At author visits I most often present to grades Pre-K through 8th grade; I'm also happy to speak to high school classes and conduct writing workshops for teens. Many schools also combine my visit with a Family Literacy Night for the community, and we often include family writing activities.
I'm comfortable presenting in large groups though smaller groups do provide more opportunity for interainteraction. My presentations are designed to feature different books for various grade levels and I often include writing activities within my sessions.
