What's Included

This after school writer’s workshop is an opportunity for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students to practice, explore, and play with writing! There will also be multiple chances for them to publish their writing as we learn to make chapbooks, word and image posters, and a culminating lit mag. We will start out each session with a shared prompt to get students’ pens moving and ideas flowing. The prompts will be engaging, interactive, and hands-on. Some examples include: crafting poems from pieces of found texts, writing character descriptions from images in magazines, creating a story from pulling parts of speech from a hat, giving each other story-starting sentences, developing the most delicious 6-word story, etc. Students will grow both independently and together as writers and appreciators of writing.

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.
