Writing in the Grammar School

By June 24, 2011January 30th, 2023No Comments

This workshop will focus on using several types of literature (narratives, myths, legends, fables, poetry) to help grammar-aged students write. The workshop is designed to generate engaging ideas that help students use the richness of the language by writing in various ways (pre-progymnasmata exercises). This workshop will be helpful for first through fifth grade classes.
