Making the most of an author event
Created in partnership with the Edinburgh International Book Festival(this will open in a new window), this resource helps learning professionals prepare for an author event, and embed learning afterwards. Activities include:
- Advice from poet Georgi Gill on preparing for a visit
- Top tips for preparation
- Activity suggestions for all CFE levels for follow up work
- Suggestions and advice for funding opportunities
Having the bank of previous broadcasts has allowed me as the Library Assistant to offer fun sessions during break and lunch times where pupils can come along and learn more about their favourite authors. These sessions have generated some great discussions about writing techniques, plot lines and character developments.
