Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Ages 12 & Up
Writing for the Soul Workshop™ offers a unique opportunity to go above and beyond common education standards in helping students create “habits of mind “both intellectual and emotional. Our curriculum exceeds current federal guidelines while walking students through an entirely new set of skills, from editing to marketing to sales skills, while immersing students in a writing therapy program that helps them get what is on the inside …out.
Our core program philosophy is based on the fact that powerful emotions have a powerful voice; and that when we get what is on the inside out, we take control of those feelings, and make smarter behavior choices as a result. Finally, our workshops offer students the opportunity to put their learning into action, to become published authors and build their financial independence. In addition to this impact on students, Writing for the Soul Workshop™ offers school districts the resources to adapt the curriculum to their specific district, school, or even individual student’s needs. Our program offers adaptations for Individuals with Differential Abilities, focused on what they can accomplish, not their “special needs.”
Our workshop addresses not just educational outcomes, but emotional and physical needs as well. Here are some of our unique WOW factors that set this workshop apart:
· Experience writing as therapy
· Access to counseling
· Nutritious meals and snacks
· Lasting, positive friends and mentors creating an ongoing network of support
· Increased proficiency in both reading and writing
· Participants become published Authors, and can promote that skill on every future resume and job application
· Participants earn royalties based on individual book sales
Writing for the Soul Workshop Kidz Zone Ages 7-11
Our Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Kidz Zone curriculum helps participants understand better their thoughts, and how that impacts what happens for them in life. Our curriculum features the work of Bill King, and Stinkin’ Thinkin’ Stinks. Sometimes we think “Kids are young. They won’t remember. They’ll bounce back from any adversity.” But today they’re faced with issues we never imagined when we were growing up. Times have changed, and much has not been for the better. Think about how you felt growing up. We did not hear about kidnappings, school shootings and the like. Sure, all kids can have it tough at times, but in a post 9/11 society many things have been lost or forgotten and one of them is our youth’s Self Esteem.
We ask, do you have stinkin’ thoughts or sa-weet thoughts, so that we can focus kids on the power of positive thinking, grow their self esteem, and reduce the destructive behaviors that lead to cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating. The curriculum features fun and colorful characters that kid’s identify with.
Our curriculum features activities through http://www.idontstink.com/, and a fun student handbook with activities that are fun, engaging and, thought provoking.
