Author Visits WR Fourth GradersAuthor Sarah Albee recently visited Western Row fourth graders in the classroom of Language Arts and Social Studies teacher Christine Work. The presentation was funded by the WR PTO.

Albee has published over 150 books in her career, mostly nonfiction, and spoke of her craft of researching and writing. A few of the books that students had the opportunity to purchase and have signed by Albee were Dog Days of HistoryBugged, and Why'd They Wear That?

"During her hour-long presentation to each group of students, she used humor, enthusiasm, and willing participants to build the interest level of nonfiction and explain her writing, note-taking, and revising processes," shared Work.

To do the research, Albee travels and visits the library to read as much as she can about the topic. She then writes more than 30 drafts of the book before sending it to her editor for review.

"For some students, nonfiction is a more difficult genre to comprehend," added Work. "We appreciated Sarah's ability to reach all of our learners and show them that researching history can actually be fun!"
