“The best word shakers were the ones who understood the true power of words. They were the ones who could climb the highest.” -Markus Zusak
This workshop for middle school writers will focus on the power of the word. We will make language and word-play the inspiration for our writing process. As we explore and develop our unique voices, we will generate, question, and celebrate WORDS! Using great writers—from Shakespeare to Spinelli—as our models and guides, we will also survey many genres, practicing diverse writing skills. Students will enjoy the camaraderie of the writer’s workshop, instructor and peer feedback, and engaging field trips, too!
