    Author/Illustrator Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw
    Jenny Sue’s Skype sessions will run 30 minutes, live from her home-studio in the southwest. Her preferred day of delivery is Thursdays between 9 a.m. and noon Mountain time (one hour behind the Central time zone). During the fall, Jenny Sue will be traveling quite a bit (including to St. Louis, we’ll update you events she will be attending!) She will be available to conduct these sessions between October 3-7th; most of November, and the first half of December.
    Prior to the Skype connection, participating classrooms should have read and be familiar with her book(s) and to let the author know if they want a specific one read/discussed. Another option is for Jenny Sue to read her new book, Same, Same but Different. Teachers and students can have a few questions prepared to ask.
    Though the half-hour sessions will be catered to the age group participating, here’s the general breakdown on the connection:
    Hello! Introductions & Questions for students.
    A studio tour. Jenny Sue will pan the camera and show them where she work and what her studio is like: painting and writing space, and looking at bookshelves and some of her favorite books.
    She will briefly discuss how she researches and uses her tools.
    Jenny Sue will read one of her books and then share about her process — asking participating classes questions about how they think she does each part and share her research, sketchbooks, how she create illustrations (paint, collage, and more).
    She will also share how she integrates personal ideas into illustrations, and how to work editors.
    Wrap up: answer any questions students have.
    If you have questions, or would like to book a session with Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw over Skype, contact Rebecca Morrison at Cooperating School Districts: rmorrison@csd.org. Please note there limited dates and times for this free program. Sign up early!

    Want to bring the experiences and resources of the NJ Vietnam Veterans' Memorial and Vietnam Era Museum & Educational Center to your classroom? Our Distance Learning programs can do just that!
    Starting in fall 2010 a new program will be available to you without you stepping out your door. Led by the educational staff and Vietnam veteran tour guides these programs will teach in-depth topics such as patriotism, a Vietnam veteran's experience, Vietnamese culture, a women's role in the Vietnam War, and the political and social movements of the Vietnam era. We can even work with you to develop a program that specifically fits the needs of your class. You can even double book a distance learning program with the Traveling Trunk program to customize your program.
    “Two Who Served: Personal Stories of the Vietnam War Experience”
    Hear the personal stories about the Vietnam War experiences of two American servicemen, through the written words of one who died and through the spoken words of one who survived. Students will read letters written by a serviceman who’s name is on the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial and then listen to one of the Foundation’s Vietnam Veteran tour guides tell his story.
    Grades 4-12
    $75
    Programs are available Monday through Friday between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 P.M. Eastern Time. Most lessons last from 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the length of your class periods. Please register at least four weeks in advance to increase the likelihood of securing your date and time of choice.
