Classrooms can be awfully boxy sometimes. Time for a Field Trip to the Telling Room, where students come to our Writing Center for the morning with their classmates and teachers to engage as working writers! At the end of the trip, each writer departs with his or her own creation and the kind of skills that bolster performance in school, across all disciplines.
And did we mention we have fun?
Field Trip curricula is geared toward learners of all ages and abilities. We are constantly astounded by children’s abilities to create stories while finding their own distinctive voices. These programs are designed to foster young writers—those who already love writing and those who come to it more reluctantly—so that all participants can benefit equally.
We have a variety of creative Field Trip models to choose from for any age and group size. Feel free to browse, or let us know if you have something up your sleeve you’d like to try.
