I just got back from running a teen writing workshop at the public library. It was a lot of fun! The students enjoyed the activities and were engaged for the full hour and a half. Even some of the teens who said they didn’t like writing got involved and tried some of the more challenging activities. They were really creative, so I thought I’d share some of the things the came up with:
Activity 1) If the students came up with 10 adjectives to describe a candy, they could win a piece of that candy. Some of them had really clever adjectives: sensational, marvelous, meltable, etc.
Activity 3) Students could create snapchat captions for pictures. I included the ones that were my favorite, but it was hard to choose!
