hopkins09On November 20th of 2009 Ellen Hopkins, the bestselling author of such novels as Crank and Glass, came to Incline High School to spend part of the day with the students.

In Senior Enrichment, students and faculty welcomed Ellen Hopkins to our high school and thanked her for coming. Interviewers, Natalie and Jose asked several questions to Ms. Hopkins including, “As an experienced and famous writer, what advice would you give to a young writer who one day dreams to be as famous as you?” Ellen explained what she did as a young writer, “always write… all the time!” She encouraged students to challenge themselves by reading and writing out of their favorite genres.jose.nat.hopkins “If you like certain types of books, say science fiction, then try reading and writing about things that aren’t science fiction—don’t get locked in one type of writing. ” She encouraged young writers to stretch to other writing styles.

Ms. Hopkins next visited Ms. Rogan’s senior class. She started off the class with giving the 5th period students a quick life-story and why she is a writer today. She then conducted a writing exercise on metaphoric speech. As students shared their work with the class, Ms. Hopkins would give her professional opinion, and suggest hopkins.brau.improvements. Through the writing exercises Ms. Hopkins shared a bit on who she really is and showed the class that famous people aren’t just snobby and stuck up, but real people.
After the class visit, she was available in the library for all students to meet. Thank you Ms. Hopkins for the school visit.
