Course Descriptions

Grades K-3 - How Writing Works from the Inside

Teaching workshop, or process writing, can make writing a joy—work that is not a chore. The workshop model is based on learning to write the way experienced writers do. This writing does not demand correctness or perfection. Students make choices and build independence, then acquire greater skill with writing conventions over time. We encourage and nurture student writing, but another key piece is for you to get on the other side of the desk, doing what we ask students to do. While your child has some educational fun, you are invited to the free Parent University to have fun writing, too. Developing your own writing life is one valuable way to respond to your child’s writing.

Lorena Lopez is a SJAWP teacher consultant, instructional coach and Assistant Principal | 6th Grade Advisor, Hoover Middle School

Laura Brown is a retired intervention coach and co-director with SJAWP. She co-directs the Invitational Summer Institute and the summer Writing Workshop for students.

Grades 4-7 - Rule 2: Know Your Audience and Surprise Them

Let curiosity lead the way into writing.

SJAWP Associate Director Jane Gilmore leads the Novel Writing Program and co-directs the Creative Writing Camp at Cumberland as well as the Teen Writers Institute at San Jose State.

Arcadia Conrad is a writer and director of the award-winning Cupertino Actors Theater out of Cupertino High School.

Grades 8-12 - Sentence Focus: Finding the Secret Agent

“Another essay prompt. Dang, this teacher’s crazy. Where do I even start with this?”

The answer is to find the secret agent, lurking there in the shadows of the prompt. Don’t see him? Let us help.
