Skyping with Lauren Oliver


On Friday, March 1st, Beachwood Middle School had the incredible opportunity to Skype with award-winning author, Lauren Oliver.  In order to participate in the Skype session, students were expected to read Delirium, answer discussion questions and participate in a small group book discussion.  Prior to the Skype session, students developed questions to ask Ms. Oliver.  Julie Ungier, BMS media specialist, attended Lauren's sessions at the 2012 OELMA conference and was inspired to contact her for a possibe author visit and Skype session.  With the help of some of the middle school teachers, Julie's idea evolved into a meaningful experience for many BMS students and staff.  I had the great opportunity to attend the session and see the sheer awe in many of the students as they asked Lauren questions about writing, becoming published and the "Delirium" series. 


Kudos to Julie Ungier! Will it be your turn to be "inspired" at the 2013 OELMA conference?

Jen Flaherty is the 2013 Vice President of OELMA and currently works at Beachwood High School in the Beachwood City School District.
