The Arrival

In the Los Angeles workshop during one of the sessions when we were talking about the power of images and especially those that the kids create (the Invisibles), someone mentioned something about a book called The Arrival. They may even use it in their CI classes. Craig West has found a PDF version of that book online and he says that he really likes the images. This post is simply an effort to find out who uses the book and how. Craig would appreciate your contacting him at

Thanks in advance for any help with this request.

    1. I got a copy of the book this summer and haven’t quite figured out what to do with it. Would you mind sharing your ideas with me, as well?
      Thank you

  1. Today I talked about belonging with students. How to say that something belongs to you we discussed the family in the first image for The Arrival and how each thing may belong to a different member of the family or to one specific person. You can find PDF version of the book online and project the images for the whole class.

      1. I definitely think I should start using this book and the images in my heritage class. Thanks for bringing it up!
