S T Davis goes to George Fisher Middle School for an Author VisitDecember 12, 2011
Monday, December 12, 2011, I visited George Fisher Middle School, in Carmel, NY to meet with the 7th grade students who had read and studied my book Musket and Mobcap during their studies of the American Revolution. I answered questions about my book, presented a writing and sharing activity, and led one of the “break out” groups on my watercolor illustrations and Graces Game. Each student left my group with a Mosket and Mobcap pencil. During the visit the students attended a variety of activities related to their studies of the American Revolution. I had a wonderful time and commend the students on their interest and enthusiasm. I hope to be able to come again in the future. I want to thank everyone for the local honey, hand dipped candles, replicas of colonial money and especially for the toy musket. I want to extend a special thanks to Mr. Reilly for inviting me.
