Teen Ink is designed for students who love writing and unleashing their creative side. Some days, I will provide mini lessons on creating compelling characters, stunning storyworlds, bold beginnings and page-turning plots. Other days, students will choose to write independently, share work and ideas with peers, or conference with me. I will provide time for volunteers to share their writing so they can receive positive affirmations and constructive critique. Together, we will form a community of enthusiastic writers where everyone feels welcome and celebrated for their unique ideas and imaginations! Please note that this is a connections class that does not replace your student’s core English language arts writing program.
