How would you like to get your students enthused about reading and writing? Would you like to make books and stories more meaningful to your students? In this session, we will share ideas for getting students excited about reading and writing by communicating with authors on the Web. We will look at some of the most active authors who connect with audiences via the Web, and explore how to contact them using a variety of social or Web-based media, such as blogs, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, Facebook, and more. This webinar will cover authors for all ages with different types of Web presence. We will also briefly touch on the reality that some of the available outlets may be blocked in some districts.
