Let's get creative and write stories!
It's what kids need right now. State standards expect children to be able to write narrative stories. But the standards can't tell a student how to write creatively. Standards simply tell how far a child must go on his trip toward writing proficiency; they can't start his engine. Kids need help to channel their imaginative ability into writing coherent stories.
And being creative is what kids want right now. Everywhere I go, I meet children who jump at the chance to imagine, who are willing to be drawn into brainstorming that produces fresh, funny, fantastic stories. If they see that creating stories is fun, they're ready for the ride!
Thats why Ive developed this assembly program with following workshops a whole day focusing on the creative process and how it connects to story-writing. It's unlike any other author and illustrator visit. This is a day your school won't soon forget!
