NCTE member and consultant Mary Cappellini tells us that she helped organize a celebration for National Day on Writing at her daughter's school in Newport Beach, California. Newport Elementary, a K-6 school, invited community members and professionals, many of whom were parents, to talk to the children about the importance of writing and "how they use writing daily in their jobs or careers." The students in each classroom listened to and interacted with three different speakers. Some of the speakers included attorneys, realtors, marketing consultants, restaurant owners, a city public information officer, a director of the local nautical museum, an editor of a magazine, and even a city editor and reporter of the local newspaper.
Besides having some parents participate as speakers, other parents also came during the writing workshop time and wrote along side their children in the classrooms. The day started with a "Writing Kick-off" by the school's principal. "It was a great celebration!" said Mary.
These sites show how to invite others to contribute their writing to a Gallery.
