Visiting the Murphy School
Thanks to Mrs. Gale's two 6th grade classes at the Richard J. Murphy School in Dorchester. We had a fun time talking about writing articles and books, what brain surgery looks like up close, and how all writers, even the 6th grade version, should really think of themselves as editors. We also discussed piracy and the apparently little know fact that there appears to be an editorial error in the school's sign.
The questions from the kids were really sharp. I actually thought they were eighth graders until Mrs. Gale informed me otherwise.
