A Place to Share for Writers and Teachers
Thank you for letting me join your community. I'm a Grade 5/6 teacher in Castlemaine, Victoria. I have a particular interest in how technology can enhance teaching and learning, and I'm very much into connecting students using technology.
One of the ways I have done this is through the creation of a Writers' club. This club can be found at http://thenorthschool.com/writersclub .
This site is for students who are passionate about any sort of writing, and would like to share their writing with a wider audience. It may be a site for your strongest writers to gain exposure for their writing and be exposed to the writing of other budding authors in schools around the world. We currently have over a hundred student authors from ten different schools in five different countries all contributing their writing.
The benefits of such a community are:
Participating students will receive a blog to share their work. There is no cost to do this and no advertising appears on our site.
If you are interested in providing your students with an opportunity to share their writing, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill in the form on the 'Join Us' page.
Anyway, thank you again for letting me into your community, and I look forward to learning from you all.
Since posting this, our community has expanded to 676 student writers from 32 schools in 13 countries. If you're interested in joining us, please email me at the above address or fill in the form at http://thenorthschool.com/writersclub/join-us/
