Students at Norwich and Hoffman Trails had the unique opportunity to work with Weaver Public Speaking students by reading and discussing books from Candace Fleming. Fleming will be a visiting author this spring at all three schools. The collaboration was set up by the Media Specialists and Technology Teachers so that teachers could sign in to Google Hangouts accounts and interact with 12 different Candace Fleming texts over the 2 days. Up to 25 classrooms at a time could view book readings and discussions. Author Candace Fleming will visit all three schools in May thanks to an HEF grant, PTO donations and media center funds.
