The Winter/Spring Writer’s Workshop will begin on Saturday, Jan 21, 2017. The writer’s workshop will include both academic and creative writing workshop in its curriculum. All academic writing topics correlate to the Common Core National Standards.
Scroll down for class schedule, session specific curriculum, and registration details.
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 14, 2017 from 9:30 – 10:30 AM or 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 on the registration form.) Students enrolling for Creative Writing Workshop need not attend assessment and orientation; an intent to write and enthusiastic participation to learn and complete all writing work on time will suffice.
