Most aspiring authors have a general idea of what they want to be their book about, but ensuring that their idea is original and builds upon current knowledge and outlining a structure can be a challenge. In this episode of Educators Without Borders, four established and successful book authors share tips and experiences on how to conduct research and build a framework for a successful writing endeavor.
Panelists include Serena Pariser (Real Talk About Time Management, Real Talk About Classroom Management), ÉTIENNE (Rock Your Class), and Heather Wolpert-Gawron (Just Ask Us: Kids Speak Out on Student Engagement, Writing Behind Every Door: Teaching Common Core Writing in the Content Areas). Facilitated by Matt Rhoads (Navigating the Toggled Term).
