Anyway, the students at Patrick Taylor communicated via Edmodo with a group of seventh graders and their teacher, Shawn Hyer, from Van Meter, IA. The Iowa students read the book, too. When we knew that Jewell was coming to New Orleans, we set up a Skype session so the Van Meter kids could participate in the author visit with us.
