Watt Key Skypes with HMS 8th grade students

Many of you remember last year's One Book One School event, featuring Alabama Moon, written by Watt Key. 

Molly Kilpatrick, our Lead Language Arts teacher, set up a skype session with Watt and our 8th grade students, who have just finished Watt's book, FourMile. Watt talked with our students about his ideas, which led to this book, the writing process, the need for continuous practice, and setting realistic goals. Our students' learned so much about the career of an author, along with essential life lessons.
