Author Visits Brockbank

Principal Alison Hansen, Author Julie Wright, Trae Armour, Alex Chandler, and Aleah Lanegan

Author Julie Wright visited Brockbank recently. She is the author of the Hazzardous Universe series. Ms. Wright shared with students her experiences as an author and got the children excited about writing. Together with the audience, Mrs. Wright wrote a story. Students came forward and picked random things from a "grab bag" of items. Ms. Wright led the student audience as they wrote a story complete with characters, a simple plot, and a conflict. Throughout the process, Ms. Wright emphasized students' creativity and pulling the story out of their own imaginations. Students enjoyed Ms. Wright and her message and her books are flying off the shelves in our library.
