SJAWP Super Saturday: March 7th for 8th-12th Graders

Saturday, Mar 7 from 9:30am–12:30pm (11 days away)
14 to 18 yrs old
Optional: adults can stay or take a breather
$30 plus 3.95% service fee

Our Super Saturdays use a "lab school" model, in which teachers and students participate in the presenter’s workshop lesson together in small groups, generally including the following: mini-lesson on writing craft, study of a mentor text, demonstration of innovative and engaging pedagogical strategies, large blocks of time for students and teachers to write, and sharing writing in small groups or whole group.

While each workshop can stand alone, students and teachers can draw much more meaning from each seminar if they have other seminars to build on. Furthermore, registering for the entire series saves you money and time.

Event Schedule
9:30-10:00am - Registration in front of Sweeney Hall Courtyard
10-10:30am - Writing Games Warm-up
10:30-12:30pm - Saturday Seminar lesson led by Teacher Consultant


March 7, 2020: "With a Little Help From My Friends"

Ever feel like you're on your own? Scared of trying something new in your writing life? Worried your readers just won't get it? I think I might have just the solution for you! Everything you've ever read can be a friend to turn to in a time of need. You might not know Jason Reynolds personally, but he's your writing friend any time you look through his stories and borrow ideas for how to write. So let's do that together. Let's look through a few passages, pull some craft moves, and try them on for size. You can get by with a little help from your friends. And any author can become your friend.

Adults are invited to stick around and attend our FREE parent university with classes on how to support your child's writing at home, or take a morning to themselves after getting their kids to their classes.
