Mary Newell DePalma Author Visit Kit
"My school visits encourage students to be active participants: writers, illustrators, readers and viewers," says Mary Newell DePalma. "The skills students are learning in their classroom are the same ones I use to create picture books: research, writing and editing.
When students realize this, they feel empowered to write and draw their own unique stories.
My school presentations involve brainstorming, thinking like a movie director, editing, and drawing. Students see sketches, revisions, and original art from my picture books. For more information, and outlines of my presentations, visit http://www.marynewelldepalma.com/ "
