IN SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Because it is not always possible for students and teachers to come to us, we frequently go to them. Page 15 offers several in-school workshops. Our online school newspaper project, which infuses new media with traditional journalistic ethics and practices, will continue at Howard Middle School this spring. Click here to check out The Howard Hype.
Our fun and interactive writing workshop, A Story is Born, which is available to any Orange County elementary school, teaches students the basics of what makes a story and has them, as a class, create their own tale to take home. To learn more about this workshop and how to schedule it at your school, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 407.422.8755.
The Young Writer’s Camp is held each summer and ventures beyond fiction and nonfiction reading and writing. Catering to students in 1st through 9th grade, each of the five week-long camps offer students the opportunity to write, illustrate and publish their very first novel with the help of creative professionals in the field. Activities include story telling, bookmaking, poetry reading and song writing. By the end of the week, students have their very own printed book to take home.
Slam Camp is an annual camp held during the spring break holiday. The camp is open to Orlando high schoolers who are passionate about poetry. Students work on one poem with Orlando’s most talented poets in preparation for a final performance. Students also take home a free t-shirt and a chapbook anthology of the all the campers’ poems.
