Why Didn't Anyone Ever Teach Me This?

Teachers of Grades 3-12

June 17-20 - 9:00am - 3:15pm daily

One of the first things that many teachers turned writers say when they take writing classes to focus on their personal practice is, "Why didn’t anyone ever teach me this?" There is a gap between what is taught in schools and the trade secrets that successful writers use professionally. This class will close the gap and share tried and true lessons that come straight out of postgraduate writing courses, all of which have been used with students in grades 3-12.

Teachers will spend their mornings studying the craft moves that professional writers make before implementing these moves in pieces of their own writing. Teachers will also be given ample time to create plans for how they will incorporate these lessons into their classroom curriculum. From sentence to structure come learn the tricks of the trade. Take a class for yourself and grow as a writer to help your students do the same.
