As part of Literacy week, Canadian Author and Environmentalist Dr. Frank Glew came to St. Paul Catholic School, Kingston to speak to students about literacy, his love of nature, his concern for the environment and the writing process. Dr. Glew read his newest book "Melissa's Magnificent Message" about a worker bee who discovers the real reason why bees are disappearing to the primary and junior classes. He discussed the important role that honey bees play in our environment. He also met with the grades 6 to 8 classes to discuss the writing process. Dr. Glew's books are a combination of factual information and fiction. As part of the students studies groups of students took each of Dr. Glew's books and created a poster breaking the books down into the setting, characters, plot, theme and facts. Dr. Glew explained to the students where his ideas came from and the steps he took to develop a book. He explained how some books took him a matter of months, where others took much longer and required many edits along the way.
