After being awarded a generous PTO grant, all sixth grade students participated in an Author-in-Residence program designed to weave strategies from the professional world of writing and publishing into classroom learning and grade-level curriculum. Using class work sessions, digital media, and virtual communities, students worked collaboratively with published author Jen Malone ( and their peers to write and publish short stories. The program culminated with an “Authors Read” event on June 2nd, which was attended and applauded by the school community, families, and community supporters.
