Exciting, productive connections with authors, illustrators, and storytellers will be explored in the Library Media course. This course goes beyond nuts-and-bolts and into planning how to create the best possible encounters between students and authors. Successful visits in real space and in cyberspace are described, giving you specific ideas of the many ways to connect with and create meaningful links between book people and children. Choosing the right guest, guidelines for successful visits, making curriculum connections, using e-mail to connect with book people, live chats in virtual space, taking advantage of ITB and satellite technology, and using props and curriculum guides are some of the topics covered.** .
