Charlotte Herman gets students excited about reading and writing. Armed with pen, notebook, and other tools of the trade, she leads them on a tour of the creative process- from idea, to story, to published book. Through her humorous and down-to-earth approach, she shares her knowledge and experience with students, inspiring and motivating them to read and write.
Students will learn how to transform their thoughts into writing, and use their imaginations and experiences to create their own stories.
The program is geared to all grade levels- from the primary grades through junior high.
