J. R. Clarke Public Library will be sponsoring a workshop for any parent; especially the homeschooling parent and/or teacher. Attend now and get ready for next fall! Nationally known author, Julie Bogart will be speaking at J. R. Clarke Public Library on Thursday, May 16 and 1:00 p.m. Julie is the author of the new THE BRAVE LEARNER. She will be presenting "The Nurturing Brave Writers Workshop" which covers the following material:
- Understanding the role of empathetic nurturing in releasing writing. Both reluctant writers and prolific writers are in need of that special support that gives them the self-confidence to take writing risks. In this session, we will interact through paired sharing, writing, using the whiteboard and lecture material.
- Learning what the natural stages of growth are in a writer's life and how to specifically apply those to your children.
- We look at how to create a rich language arts environment as well as how copywork and dictation function in the Brave Writer Lifestyle. Grammar, spelling, punctuation and mechanics are all addressed.
- There may also be information on high school and academic writing to help take the mystery and intimidation out of it.
This workshop is more than a set of formulas to follow when you get home and prepare for next fall! We aim to transform not just how you understand the writing process, but how you relate to your interesting, quirky, endlessly fascinating children who have so much to say, yet have not discovered the power of putting their words into writing. There are ways to unleash that writer within your child. It's up to you to foster the empathetic, nurturing environment that creates that safe context. By the end of our workshop, you'll go home knowing that you are the perfect person to lead your children into the writer's jungle.
Refreshments will be served and please sign-up for this event by calling 937-473-2226 or stopping by the JRC!
