An Author's Journey

             This guy is awesome. Such a terrific presentation for our writing contest. Thank you, Christian Kueng, author of Three Genie Brothers, for sharing your talents and passion with our middle school students today."

Chris starts each assembly telling about his family, immigrants to the United States, and then moves quickly to how he developed his story about a family of genies.

 

Via a Powerpoint presentation, Chris shares his own drawings, how he gets his ideas, how he created the storyline using a Flow Map, and imagined a whole new world of the jinn.

 

The assembly includes a time for audience members to ask questions.

Let's Make a Story

For younger audiences Chris begins with an overview of Three Genie Brothers. Through the course of the presentaiton, Chris introduces the 5Ws - Who, What, Where, When, and Why that are then used as the audience create a collaborative story that charts out everyone's ideas. Chris concludes the assembly by drawing a picture of the story's hero.
