Cultural field trips
Writers In The Schools
In this year's fragile economy, we need your help more than ever. As schools struggle with less and less, low-income schools, in particular, are unable to afford WITS this year. This means that without your help, many children will not be able to share their stories, strengthen their literacy skills, and learn that their words really matter. Every child deserves this opportunity.
This gift will enable three students to take a field trip to a cultural venue where they will use art or nature to inspire and enhance their writing. Your support will provide a required match for a field trip as part of a full-year program that engages children in the pleasure and power of reading and writing. Students will learn through direct experience about the world around them and use stories and poems to capture their thoughts, senses, and memories.
