Creative Writing Pedagogy for Youth

The presenters, Ms. Carrie Oorlog and Dr. Christine Stewart, will argue that teaching students to write in creative genres—fiction, poetry, and memoir—can help them achieve the learning outcomes of South Dakota’s Common Core in ways that create motivation and excitement on both sides of the desk.

Using classroom-tested unit and lesson plans, the presenters will provide examples of activities that work. Time and guidance will be provided to allow participants to integrate ideas into their own curricula.
