What a Welcome

At 6:55 AM we all piled into a school van and set out through bustling traffic to the Shanghai American School. The traffic reminded me of New York with cars, taxis, motorbikes, and bikes jocking for position. No driver seems to look they just go. It was a religious experience. When we arrived at the school this is what greeted us.

Things Start Tuesday at the Shanghai American School

There are 2 campuses at the Shanghai American school. I will be at the Pudong campus for week one and at the Puxi campus for week two. Each campus has about 350 middle grade children. There are 3 other authors here besides me. Sheree Fitch www.shereefitch.com and Ralph Fletcher www.ralphfletcher.com are for the elementary school children and Chris Crutcher www.chriscrutcher.com for the High School children.

I begin on Tuesday with an assembly for the entire Pudong middle school. Using magic, humor and red noses I will be talking to them about writing and creativity. After the assembly I visit 3 classes. On Wednesday I visit 4 classes , Thursday 3 classes and a parents talk, and Friday 4 classes.

Every night we are taken out to dinner by a different group. ( HS, MS, and ES librarians, Chinese teachers, parents committee, and teachers committee). Our palates will be treated to tastes and textures from all over the world but I do not think we will be taken to a kosher deli.

Already mentioned on another Blog

I got a google alert which I checked out. It was a reference to Ms. Muench’s Humanities Blog who mentioned my visit to her Middle Grade class in Shanghai. It was a nice warm up for my visit.

Middle School here I come

Middle School here I come

I have been invited to be the visiting author for the Middle Grade children at the Shanghai American School.

It should be a great adventure and I can’t wait to see the kids and talk to them. I am also going to be talking to the parents about handling the stresses of parenting with humor.
