On March 20, CILC.org is having a Spring Fling where you will discover a terrific resource of content providers that visit classrooms. Authors on Call, the iNK Video Conferencing Group is one of them. Of course, members of AOC also write Nonfiction Minutes. So this is a fun and challenging opportunity for your students. If you go to the link above, you will see there are three Tracks for programming. iNK is the Third Track so you can scroll down and find us. We are each scheduled for a 15 minute session to answer questions about our Minute. The link to each author's Minute is also on the site. Think up a good question and then you dial in and we'll be there smiling, ready to answer your questions.
Here's a couple of questions you might want to ask: What is the most satisfying thing about writing nonfiction? What made you decide to write nonfiction rather than fiction? How did you learn what you write about?
If you don't know about CILC and the power of interactive videoconferencing to bring really interesting people, including us authors, into you classroom, you and your students will be happily surprised.
