Barbara McClintock

Available dates: Flexible
Please send an email via Barbara’s website contact for information:

Barbara is developing 45-50 minute virtual presentations that are similar to her live school presentations. She discusses where she gets ideas for her books, using selected books as focus titles, and talks about the writing process, keeping ‘doodle books’ ( a combination of note books and sketches books ), outlining and planning, research, creating dummy books, revising, and the publishing process. Sessions end with 20 minutes of Q&A with students. 

Barbara’s visits are designed to be developmentally appropriate for various ages ranging from grades K-1, 2-3 and 4-5. Barbara's virtual visits are designed to be interactive, and engage students with the writing process, and STEM concepts.

These presentations are available to all school and home-school groups.

And in the meanwhile, here is Barbara reading two of her books to share with your students. 

Good luck with the new school year!
