It’s a good idea to schedule a brief informal “session” a few days before the online visit to make sure the equipment on both ends is working properly.
A Go To Studio session generally ranges between 30- to 45-minutes and costs $150. This reflects more than a 70% savings over my traditional on-site author/illustrator session.
I will record the session so that you can share it with students who were absent during the live program. You may also wish to review the the video when discussing the program's topics with students at a later date.
I will email a link to the recorded session, often on the same day as the Go To Studio program, and it will be posted for a limited time. Important: The video session is intended to be viewed by ONE classroom or ONE grade level within a building only. Any other use beyond the agreed-upon group is strictly prohibited.
