SJAWP Super Saturday: October 19th for 4th-7th Graders
Our Super Saturdays use a "lab school" model, in which teachers and students participate in the presenter’s workshop lesson together in small groups, generally including the following: mini-lesson on writing craft, study of a mentor text, demonstration of innovative and engaging pedagogical strategies, large blocks of time for students and teachers to write, and sharing writing in small groups or whole group. While each workshop can stand alone, students and teachers can draw much more meaning from each seminar if they have other seminars to build on. Furthermore, registering for the entire series saves you money and time. Event Schedule 9:30-10:00am - Registration in front of Sweeney Hall Courtyard 10-10:30am - Writing Games Warm-up 10:30-12:30pm - Saturday Seminar lesson led by Teacher Consultant ************************************************************************** YES, And... Using the Rules of Improv to Inspire Writing Saturday, October 19 - Rule 2: Know Your Audience and Surprise Them - Who gives us permission to create? Many students of writing are under the mistaken impression that conditions need to be perfect to foster the flow of ideas, and that only the “good’ ideas should be explored. In this course we will apply the rules of improvisation to the page. Using individual and group exercises designed to connect students to their own process, we will unleash new creative practices that fully engage the whole student in the act of 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.
