Giving Authors a Place to Sit

The cost of a Director's Chair and Director's Chair utility bag from Dick Blick is $155, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a sixth grade teacher who needs an author's chair for my classroom. My students write for a variety of purposes and I would like a special author's chair for my students to sit in when they share their writing. This chair will give us a special place where students can feel that they are important and are actual authors. When students write stories, they are encouraged to share their writing with their classmates. They sit in the author's chair and share their writing. Their classmates provide feedback and the author chooses what to take into consideration. This chair would be a place to go to when anyone has something that they would like to share with the classroom community. I think that it will help students look forward to sharing their work.
