Young Writers Project 

OUR SCHOOLS INITIATIVE

The founders of CONNECT have a passion for many things in life - and among them, sitting high on the list - is assisting the progression and development of young people.

 

So it is then, that under the umbrella of the CONNECT franchise - launched in Tetbury as our flagship platform, we are excited to bring together the passions we hold most dear to us.

 

We bring together communication at different levels and forms, to share interesting stories and insights into areas of common interest - spotlighting news, both local and from around the world - and providing a platform to encourage the development and contribution of Young Writers.    

We are delighted to launch this Schools Initiative which we believe will deliver positive and lasting benefits to all those students who participate.

We are pleased to summarise below what the Schools Initiative is about and how it can help encourage the development of Young Writers.

 

And for Young Writers, we set a low age bar. 
We are eager for seniors in primary schools to be involved as well as students in senior
 schools.

A brief outline...

 

It's an opportunity for students to be:

Writers and Journalists

either face-2-face or remotely

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS

ENGLISH

Descriptive writing, narrative writing, and writing to express a clear, reasoned and engaging viewpoint.

HISTORY

Real-world connection with local history, providing opportunities to research and interview historians, older citizens and commentators.

SCIENCE

Taking a subject of interest and explaining it to the layman through the translation of scientific terminology and principles into everyday common language.

MEDIA STUDIES

Application of all learned skills in a real-world setting. It brings together a mix of learned abilities - in design, layout, the written word and communication generally - through the analysis of potential content and how best to deliver that content to the wider world.  

CITIZENSHIP
Research and interrogation of evidence, the debate and evaluation of viewpoints, and the presentation of reasoned arguments. 

 

These elements we feel will have increasing value over the coming years helping us to navigate a successful path to a sustainable future.
 

ADDITIONALLY

We have highlighted the main and obvious curriculum subjects to place a tick against.  We are though very aware that the positive effects of the Schools Initiative may go much wider than we can imagine right now.  The mid-term results - in the form of feedback from students and teachers alike - we are certain - will be interesting.
