Invite the Author to the Conversation

posted: 12.24.07 by Barclay Barrios

One consequence of the prevalence of the Web is that it’s easier than ever to locate and contact people (for good or bad). That includes the authors of the essays you may be reading in class. Have your students search for the email address or contact information for the author for an essay under discussion in class and then as a group or class project have them assemble a list of questions they’d like to ask the author. Submit these to the author as a way of extending the class conversation.
