Grade 5 students explore writing studies

studentsOn Friday, March 28, we hosted 140 gifted Grade 5 students from the Thames Valley District School Board for a full day of writing and poetry workshops. The students rotated through 4 workshops and had a blast interacting with our faculty! Michael Fox delivered a workshop on"Quests, Monsters, and Treasure: How Do We Make Their Stories?",  David Heap and Stephanie Kelly presented "Tracing Word Histories and Visualizing Speech Sounds", Michael Arntfield presented "Children's Mystery Novels and the Cozy Whodunit", and Tom Cull presented an interactive Poetry Lab. Thanks to Writing Studies for organizing such a wonderful day for the students! See video clip from Rogers TV
