Young Writer’s Workshop – Winter/Spring 2015

The Winter/Spring Writer’s Workshop will begin on Saturday, Jan 17th, 2015 for Grades K-8. This session will span across five months and will cover a wide range of academic writing topics and creative writing projects. All academic writing topics correlate to the Common Core National Standards.

Please note that the next full-fledged writer’s workshop will be offered only in Fall 2015. Scroll down to view the schedule for exact dates & times of all classes. All classes will be held on Saturdays.

As always, enrollment is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. The class size is small and within each class, students will be grouped in clusters of three to four based on student aptitude and writing ability.

The small class size allows for individual attention to each student. This helps foster a sense of belonging to a supportive learning community in which students can feel comfortable exploring new directions in their writing and thinking. Trusting one’s own language and voice, learning to think for oneself and in collaboration with others— these are the qualities and skills that the workshop strives to develop.

For new writers, an Initial Assessment & Parent Orientation will be held on Saturday, Jan 10, 2015 from 9:30 – 10:30 AM and 11:30 – 12: 30 PM. This session must be attended by the new writer(s) and at least one parent. (Plan to attend any one session. Indicate your choice in the registration form.)
