Students will produce at least three journal entries demonstrating growth in their writing through the application of skills learned, teachers will gain skill in teaching historical fiction writing, students will express knowledge of the artistic skills Mr. Durbin has taught them and they will apply this artist’s literary writing strategies throughout the year.Students and teachers will use a 1-3 point scale rubric to note writing skills growth and awareness through comparing pre and post journal entries. Parents and guardians will be asked to assess the impact their student’s involvement in this activity has had on their student.
Our target population of over 300 6th graduate student writers were positively impacted by Mr. Durbin’s visit. A rubric was used to compare pre and post activity writing. Input was also gathered regarding satisfaction during learning through survey monkey. Observations and comments on the day’s activities were positive. During the community event we had a snowstorm so attendance was down. The event changed into a fabulous discussion of Durbin’s writing process as an adult writing for middle level readers and was valuable for all those that attended.
