Merrick Avenue MS Students Enjoy Virtual Author Visit

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.
