What kids learn in writing classes

Here’s a brief look at what kids learn in after-school writing classes. Consult each program above for accurate details of what they learn there. 

Creative writing. Creative writing classes help curious students exercise their imaginations. Children will learn to write short stories, poems, flash fiction, creative essays, and more in class.  Kids will also be given the freedom to explore genres that excite them, including forms as diverse as fantasy, adventure, or drama, etc. They’ll broaden their range as writers.

Academic writing. In classes focused on this area, children will learn to write different types of essays in order to argue, persuade, or educate a reader. As a result, kids more deeply understand the difference between professional and casual language. A class focused on this style of writing improves students’ confidence when approaching written assignments in school. Even creative writing classes will help them improve in this area. 

Grammar and punctuation. The first step to writing polished and professional prose is having correct grammar and punctuation. Kids will take part in exercises that challenge and grow their understanding of the rules of grammar and punctuation. Mastering this skill improves the clarity and fluidity of their writing.

Writing process. The writing process consists of brainstorming, drafting, and editing. As they progress through this process in a creative writing class, children internalize a routine they adapt to their learning style. Paying close attention to each step, as they will in a writing class, improves the consistency of their writing.

Storytelling components. Important concepts of storytelling will be taught in creative writing programs. Kids learn how to create captivating characters, dialogue, and settings, and they also learn other plot devices. Understanding the importance of each component and how to do each of them well will help them improve their story writing.

Story analysis. In class, kids analyze the writing of others in order to improve their own. They will also analyze characterization, syntax, and other literary elements to understand the themes of famous stories. This analysis demonstrates the complexity of constructing a story which children will apply when writing their own stories.

The benefits of writing classes

Kids and teens gain many advantages from participation in after-school programs for writing. Here’s a quick look at those: 

Academic preparation. Writing classes prepare students for future academic essays, tests, and written assignments. Kids learn how to write professionally with a focus on enhancing their vocabulary, improving grammar and punctuation, and correcting spelling. Academic preparation in these programs helps students use language effectively, to deliver their ideas in an astute way. Kids apply what they learn to school work and improve their overall academic performance.

Experimentation with styles and genres. In writing lessons, instructors teach a variety of different writing genres and styles including short stories, fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and essays (both academic and creative). Experimenting with each style and genre helps solidify a student’s writing niche.

Builds a writing portfolio. As kids complete a variety of written pieces, they demonstrate their range as writers. Classes help them curate a thoughtful and polished portfolio they can use as part of post-secondary applications. 

Creates healthy work habits. Because of programs’ regularity, students will refine their writing habits outside of class. They’ll learn to balance both their academic and personal responsibilities. 

Workshop stories and writing. Presenting your work to an audience is a great way to increase confidence in your writing. Kids will work with peers to discuss and analyze their writing. They may read stories or other writing aloud, and positive feedback they gain will encourage them. As they learn from one another and set personal goals, students improve and build confidence.

Enhances vocabulary. In classes, children are encouraged to use simple yet powerful language to present their ideas to readers. A broadened vocabulary helps improve their writing’s clarity and consistency. This also allows them to be more articulate verbal communicators.

Learn from expert writers. The professional writers that lead programs build a mentor/mentee relationship with students. The support provided helps to build children’s self-esteem. This will ultimately be reflected through the improved quality of their writing.

Questions to ask writing programs providers

Here’s a quick look at some questions to ask about kids’ writing programs near you, to help you discover which is the best for you and your family. 

  1. What are instructors’ credentials for teaching writing? How much experience do they have in both writing and teaching? 
  2. Does the class focus specifically on academic or creative writing?
  3. How much homework is assigned each week?
  4. How much time is spent learning writing skills versus applying these skills?
  5. What literacy level is considered a prerequisite for the class? 

Related Camps
