We would like to start a writing club at Bonnette Junior High. Any student on campus would be allowed to join. This would be a time dedicated to creative writing. We would learn from mentor texts and authors. Through their skill we would build our knowledge of author's craft.
We would meet once a week to discuss our projects, learn something new from an author, and share our pieces in a collaborative safe atmosphere. Not only will this foster a love of writing in students, but it will teach students to refine their craft and get control of basic mechanics, sentence structure, and building vocabulary. Teachers will meet with kids regularly in conferences to check in with their progress and where they may need help. Supplies purchased with grants funds will be used in all activities.
Campus: Bonnette Junior High
