The Story is You: Narrative Writing as an Act of Liberation, Identity, and Existence​​​​​​​, 6-12 (No cost for TMI PLC and Literacy Alliance Members)

The Story is You: Narrative Writing as an Act of Liberation, Identity, and Existence (6-12)

In the realm of secondary level literacy, there may be no more maligned form of writing than the personal narrative. Treated as the underperforming sibling to the more formal essays, it is often either dismissed as “mere creative writing” or leveraged for college admissions. The tragedy is that this framework, when treated with the respect it is due, can serve as the conduit for our students’ most inspired, and inspiring, writing. In this session, we’ll take a deep dive into narrative writing frameworks, recognize the literacy development opportunities within this approach, and establish an approach to the personal narrative that is both substantial and celebratory.

Audience: All Grade 6-12 Teachers, Coaches, Specialists, and Administrators
Instructor: Matthew Morone, TMI/Gravity Goldberg Secondary Level ELA/Literacy Specialist
Location: Ramapo College of NJ; Trustees Pavilion - Room 2
