What's Included

The goal of the Writers’ Workshop is to consider the elements of story and voice. Through games, visits with authors (via video clips and audio), read alouds and free writes, students will explore and be exposed to a variety of genres. They will learn that stories can take on many shapes such as a memoir, a novel or novella or a poem to name a few. As students begin to feel connected to a genre of writing, they will have the freedom to work on pieces that are meaningful to them. Each session will end with a Writer’s Share where the writers share a portion of their work from the day’s session. - Keira Rogers

About This Organizer

For over 130 years the Ethical Culture Fieldston School has been committed to excellence in education as it seeks to develop the intellectual, artistic and moral potential of its students. ECFS serves approximately 1,700 students and 325 faculty and staff in our four divisions. Ethical Culture, Fieldston Lower, Fieldston Middle, and Fieldston upper. Ethical Culture is located in midtown Manhattan on Central Park West, in a six-story, turn-of-the-century school building; the other divisions share an 18-acre campus in the Riverdale Section of the Bronx.

Through an academic program that is demanding, rigorous, and through, we encrouage our students to challenge themselves in innovative ways, so they can reach their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit. We approach education in an interdisciplinary, experiential, and colaborative way, helping our students develop a lifelong passion for learning and understanding of its relevance beyond the classroom. As ethical learning provides the foundation of all that we do, we emphasize our students' moral development, and guide them towards service and social justice. The admirable successes of our graduates in a wide range of fields - from the arts to the sciences, from business to public service - and their contribution to society, attest to the promise of ECFS realized.
