Writing With Purpose Brian Heinz at Washington Drive Primary School
Famous award-winning children’s book author Brian Heinz visited Washington Drive Primary School in the Harborfields Central School District to teach the students about the book writing and publishing process on May 18.
With entertaining re-enactments of a variety of his real-life experiences, Mr. Heinz taught the students methods he uses when researching possible book topics.
In his discussion, he spoke about the importance of using the five senses to develop and incorporate descriptive language in their writing.
With the use of a “road map”- style mural board and dozens of visual aids, students learned how a book becomes reality from raw ideas to a finished product, and the many steps and people involved in the process.
