Celebrate Florida Literacy Week 2012 with
Walt Disney World Resort and Author Ridley Pearson
Walt Disney World® Resort is celebrating Florida Literacy Week in 2012! You and your students are invited to join in and become a part of the story at a magical place that’s known for bringing classic tales to life.
On January 26th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, the Disney Youth Education Series presents: A Conversation with Author Ridley Pearson. Your students will have the chance to interact with the New York Times bestselling author of the Kingdom Keepers book series. During this special presentation, Pearson will share insights on his creative process, story inspiration, character development and even his career path to becoming an award-winning writer.
After the 1-hour event, use the provided guidebook and map to lead your class on the all new literary adventure, Kingdom Keepers Quest, at Magic Kingdom® Park. Students take on the role of the characters in the Kingdom Keepers story and put their reading, math and problem-solving skills to the test as they work together to save the Park from the Overtakers.
The best inspiration comes from personal experiences, so put your students in the middle of the story and see if they have what it takes to become a Keeper. All grades welcome. Groups of 10 or more students required. Don’t miss this special engagement – learn more now!
