Over the weekend I had the chance to meet Chris Van Allsburg, author of The Polar Express and many other amazing books. I wrote about it on my blog, along with a teacher gift idea and how I used my favorite Chris Van Allsburg book (The Mysteries of Harris Burdick) in the classroom. I included 3 graphic organizers that could be used with any of his books or any fiction text for that matter. They focus on mapping a story and sequencing a story.
