Write What You Love: Creating Independent Writing Projects 2

Write What You Love:
Creating Independent Writing Projects

Instructor: Matt Glover

Elementary School, Grades 3-5

August 3 – August 7

During school, children often don’t have much freedom as writers. In this camp, children will be excited to write because they get to decide they type of writing they’ll do (which genre), and the topic they’ll write about. Matt will support campers in choosing genres, finding real world examples of those genres, and studying published authors who write in the genre they’ve chosen. Matt will confer with individual students as they find ideas, plan, write, and revise. The goal is for students to deepen their love of writing by writing what they want with practical support for making their writing better. On the last day, students have a writing celebration and read their writing aloud.
