Writing Workshop!

Help me give my students the tools needed to grow as thinkers and writers!

My Students

Our school is an inner city school with a diversity of students and staff in a low income area. We work hard to create a positive culture and climate where all students can thrive.

My students are very energetic and love learning in a variety of styles.

Our students take pride in being caring and responsible community members that work hard to reach their potential. They are becoming goal oriented learners that motivate themselves and each other to reach their goals.

My Project

In our classroom, we use small group workshops and Thinking Maps to help us with different concepts. Thinking maps help us organize our thoughts into categories. They are especially useful during writing, which is an area many students struggle with. They help set up our plan and get our drafts completed.

Your donations will help give us the materials needed to successfully implement writing workshops in our classroom!

We use colored pens along with the maps to separate and focus on each of our paragraphs. We also meet in small groups for ability and skill based mini lessons to improve our writing.
