Collaborative Writing with Kids

Hello World. I would like to show all the viewers a new project being worked on by my group in English Class. This project involves creativity and kids. Nowadays the creativity people had when they were children is being pounded out of them by repetitive uncreative teaching. Through much repetition and mechanical work, students eventually become mindless robots without the ability to think outside the box and work. Our goal, our idea, is to hopefully preserve and promote that creativity in children through creative writing. We will be generating prompts and sending them to a chosen Elementary school. Then we’ll have the kids create a writing of their own and with those writings we’ll assemble a book with all the pages. This is not only going to make use of their great creativity but also improve their writing skills and possibly their joy for writing. I will continue to post about our progress so keep watching. Big thanks to all the viewers.
