EDEN-s28a: Children’s Writing



Students read and discuss a wide range of literature for and by children as well as pertinent critical studies, and travel weekly to Dunn Elementary School in New Gloucester to work with third, fourth, and fifth graders on well-known poetry and fiction as well as the children’s own creative writing. With help from the children, they produce a classroom magazine and organize a poetry/fiction reading.

Curriculum and Research Computing (CRC) assisted in the creation of the final project for this class: A literary magazine of elementary school poetry. The assistance included help with scanning and desktop publishing.
