Coach Bed-Stuy public school students writing poems — Brooklynian

Coach Bed-Stuy public school students writing poems

Volunteer with Behind the Book, a non-profit literacy organization that inspires New York City public school students to love reading. Through our innovative programs, accomplished authors lead workshops in high-needs pre-K-12 classrooms, where they guide students in creating their own writing and art projects based on the theme of the author's book.

No experience or training is necessary to volunteer. As a writing, research or art coach, you'll engage them and encourage their progress on a project.

This workshop needs your support at a public school in Bed-Stuy. To sign up, contact with the program code. We'll supply the school address, directions, and other information when you're confirmed:

Program EA6ZE-M

Date: Thursday, May 11th, 2017
Time: 9:00 - 10:30 AM
About the workshop: Zetta Elliott's powerful story Bird, about a boy who learns that his love for drawing is a way to process the challenges his family faces from his brother's addiction, inspired sixth-graders to write a poem about how they've overcome obstacles. Writing coaches will guide students in reaching their final drafts.
