Consulting at Elon Elementary School

In Spring 2015, the Writing Center was invited to work one on one with 4th and 5th grade students at our local elementary school, Elon Elementary.

Our consultants were partnered with children who were participating in the SPLASH immersion program, which means they were working with students who’s K-5 schooling had been almost entirely facilitated in Spanish.

Our consultants were able to work with the elementary students on elaborating their ideas for stories they were writing, working dialogue into their stories, and guiding them on how to engage the reader by developing a clear mental image when describing the plot of their stories.
