Description

Class Experience

As the class goes on students will get practice in:
•	Organizing their thoughts with pre-writing exercises
•	Reading their work out loud
•	Listening to their peers in an engaged and respectful way
•	Giving articulate, respectful, and helpful feedback to their peers
•	Developing focus and concentration on a task
•	Letting their creative ideas flourish
•	Engaging in exciting collaborative creativity with other students 
•	Learning elements of novel plot structure
I've taught writing workshops for children and teens since 1992.  This type of workshop format is tried and true. I consistently see student's writing improve over the course of the workshop.  Kids who don't write well by hand, who don't spell--who struggle to read their own writing, much less read it out loud--are motivated with all the freedom they have to work and create exciting stories.  With fun writing time--and usually that's almost all it is: time spent writing + fun--problems shake out of sentences until the child is writing fluid paragraphs and can read their work to others with confidence. 
None.
Students should have access to writing paper and pen for each workshop class. We want to put our inner critic away--it's too easy to erase words on the computer. Tip: have a folder on hand so you can put stories from the workshop together at the end of each day.
Students are keenly aware of their peer's reactions to their work. They know when everyone is listening breathlessly.  They know when everyone is excited about their writing. Positive reinforcement for strong writing from the group encourages students to write at a more challenging level.
4 hours 10 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
