Program Description
Want your students to learn how to read for knowledge and write powerfully about the real world? Why not learn from Vicki Cobb who has written 90 books, won awards and also is a Contributor to the Huffington Post.  Vicki unpacks  her  researching and writing processes as  she interacts with you and your students.

They will learn authentic tips on:
How to research.
How to interview experts.
How to organize material
How to bring your writing to life so others will want to read it.
Program Format
This is a conversation with a lot of interaction between the author and students. It is most helpful to students if they ask specific questions about the writing issues that they struggle with most.
As a result of our programs students will:
Understand the many research resources available to them
Be inspired to apply what they’ve heard to their own writing
Have a heightened awareness of how to reach an audience through their writing.
Develop an appreciation of the many choices a writer makes in communicating.
See the possibilities in writing about the real world that goes well beyond reiterating information.
