Favorite Testimonial of Spring 2021!
The most powerful kind of learning is when students are in control of their work and they are able to share their own voice. This is the kind of workshop that Writopia put together for my 7th Grade PC students. The instructor was professional, intelligent and kind. He used his activities to immediately connect with my students and got them involved in the project, quickly. Each week he taught the students a new skill which they could apply to their piece. He taught them the structure of writing screenplays, the importance of developing characters,and finally how to come up with an ending. Students used each skill to embellish their stories. Personally, I loved how gracious the instructor was when students had different opinions. He treated my students and their work with a tremendous amount of respect. I also appreciated how well he understood the humor of 7th graders. When we first started the process of screenwriting with the students, I was skeptical that the students would be able to complete the task and write a five minute play in the time allotted. I am happy to report that every single one of my students completed a play. The program put the students in a lead role enabling them to find their writing voice. The final event with real actors was amazing and blew us all away. Seeing and hearing each of the student’s stories come alive was very powerful for everyone. The instructor and the other actors shared very encouraging words with the students about each of the plays. It showed us all what is possible when you put learners in the driver’s seat of their own learning. He connected learning to a real life experience.The students will never forget this experience and neither will I.
