Writing is a critical skill for students to develop. In the Writing Connections class we offer students the opportunity to explore their individual interests and passions while stretching into new writing territory. Writing and sharing with others in a group setting is highly motivating and empowering. We will explore writing in a wide variety of forms including: poetry, prose, essay, article, short story, mini-novel, biography, blog entry, script, screen play, illustrated story or graphic novel. Every five or six weeks students hold a reception and read selected writing aloud to family and friends. We also publish our work in a bound book and seek other places to publish for a wider audience. Students are also informed of writing contests and other writing opportunities. Most of the work for class will be completed during class time, however, there may be occasions when a student will need to complete work at home, particularly if they have been absent or if they chose an ambitious project. Your child will become a confident writer.

*Note students who take both Writing Connections & Time Travel through Art will have a supervised lunch and recess time at no extra charge.
