Write On Sports (Grades 5-6)
Write on Sports is a literacy/journalism program that targets middle school students and teaches them how to write about sports as a way to inspire and help them to write. During a two-week summer camp, guest sports journalists model and conduct interviews with specially-selected athletes. Students become journalists by learning how to research player bios and statistics, ask questions, and develop articles and scripts for videos. By strengthening communication, perceptual and intellectual proficiencies, the Write on Sports program provides a set of skills that can be applied to academic areas beyond sports writing.
