New Possibilities for Young Writers
with Susan Harris Mackay & Matt Karlsen

How can we create entry points for writing, so that all writers feel confident and motivated to share their stories? Story Workshop is a structure for early literacy that amplifies the relationship between play, art and writing. 

"We are not the things we accumulate. We are not the things we deem important. We are story. All of us. What comes to matter, then, is the creation of the best possible story we can while we're here; you, me, us, together. When we can do that and we take the time to share those stories with each other, we get bigger inside, we see each other, we recognize our kinship - we change the world one story at a time."  
Richard Wagamese

Preparing for a year of creating and sharing stories

The past year has been one of incredible challenge - for each of us as well as for the children and families we serve. As we sit perched on the edge of a new school year, we benefit from setting intentions for constructing belonging and connectedness in our classrooms and schools. Together, we'll consider how we can make schools places of hope and healing..
