I know reading and writing may be the last thing on most students’ minds this summer, but it’s really what I’m looking forward to. Actually, I’ve already finished one book and it’s the best book I’ve read in a LONG time. I may have even liked it more than “Hunger Games.” Actually, I did like it more than “Hunger Games.” But I’ll get to that in a minute.
I actually wanted to post about summer writing workshops for young writers who want an opportunity to be creative this summer. The San Jose Area Writing Project has youth programs held at San Jose State (you might end up in one of my old classrooms … or I may haunt you …) to help young writers refine their skills. The San Jose Area Writing Project is run by a couple of awesome professors at SJSU who personally helped me through the credential program, and who are very connected to the schools in the community. They are continuing to educate teachers with their Saturday workshops and summer programs, and they are looking to educate the youth as well. This writing project is promoting literacy and a love for reading and writing throughout the South Bay, and I adore them for it. So if you love to write, or even just like to write, consider this workshop! :)
