On May 18, students in Sue Schmidt’s English class at Merrick Avenue Middle School used Skype to speak with Todd Strasser, author of “The Wave.”
This novel is a major title in the eighth-grade literary canon so the opportunity to meet the author was a considerable treat.

“Not only did Strasser provide insight to his work, he also gave students valuable advice that they can easily apply to their own writing,” said Schmidt.
