I'm very excited about a project that I'm currently working on with a local middle school. The details have not yet been worked out, but, hopefully very soon I will be talking with students and their art teacher about illustrating a book I'm writing. My graduate work was with fourth grade students creating their own radio programs and having them air on a local radio station. Well, radio is, perhaps, not something children listen to these days, but the concept is similar; that being to let children create something from their own imaginations that is then published. I've been saying for so long that children need to be encouraged to use their imaginations. I guess now I'm putting my money where my mouth is. If this project is successful, I may try the same with elementary school students. Wish me luck.
