The Writers’ Workshop – Home School Writing
Ignite your imagination while practicing your skills as a writer. Students will have the opportunity to engage in interesting and creative writing activities and projects while focusing on specific skill development. Through ‘one pagers’ and poetry, students will hone their descriptive writing skills developing rich vocabulary and figurative language. A focus will be on creating mood and tone while developing imaginative settings. Have you ever wanted to write your own adventure or fantasy story? What better way to practice story structure and character development than by writing a ‘hero’ story! Perhaps your hero will be from Ancient Greece, or maybe they are a superhero from the future! We will also practice persuasive writing as students become a defense lawyer or prosecutor for one of William Shakespeare’s questionable characters! Students will have the opportunity to share their writing and participate in one-to-one and group editing sessions, working towards self-editing and revising their work.
Grades 4 to 7.
