I'm so glad you asked!
In our class, we have a number of special event days...like STEAM and OUTDOOR DAY. I wanted to include one that was WRITING focused.
Right now, it is only scheduled for a period (or two) in length but I'd love to see us build that up into a fuller day.
Ok. Great. But what IS it exactly?
So glad you asked!
WRITER'S CAFE is...CELEBRATING & SHARING THE WRITING CRAFT.
This might mean...
- celebrating writing of all types, everything from stories to scripts to movie reviews...
- sharing writing, whether that's interesting bits from what you are reading, interesting bits you yourself have written either as an assignment or for fun, or sharing FREEWRITE activities..
If it involves writing, we are going to play with it, enjoy it, and celebrate it during WRITER'S CAFE!
Note: eventually we will evolve into a CAFE setting...students, one of our first tasks will be determining what would make our CAFE setting awesome!
