Creative Writing Camp by Miss Cat

Cat holds a BA in English from Harvard University and an MFA in Fiction Writing from Columbia University, where she also taught undergraduate creative writing workshops as a Teaching Fellow. She has instructed students at Berklee College of Music and Columbia University, and at high schools in the United States and South Africa. Currently, she is an associate prose editor at a respected journal. Her short story won The Missouri Review’s 2019 Peden Prize, given to the best story in the journal’s volume year.

In this class, we will learn in a variety of ways: by reading and discussing popular short stories, both classic and contemporary; by participating in and critiquing writing exercises; and by receiving personal feedback on writing assignments.

Why do we need to learn creative writing?

In school, students are primarily exposed to academic writing, which is a useful skill, but can be dry. Studying creative writing allows students to strengthen their core writing skills while also learning to express themselves in fun and creative ways. The goals of this course are both to improve students’ writing skills and to stimulate their interest in reading and writing. Students will sharpen their critical reading and thinking skills, while being exposed to a variety of authors and writing styles.

Why do we need to learn creative writing?

Poems, novels, and short stories are the forms of Creative Writing. Students usually learn academic writing in school and they do not have many opportunities to explore other forms of writing. Learning Creative Writing enables students to experience different writing skills. After experienced different writing techniques, students can utilize different writing skills in suitable writing situations accurately. 

Secondly, Diversifies writing formats are also more interesting. Different from academic writing, the teaching process and course contents are more interesting. Creative Writing can stimulate students' interest and guide students to be more comfortable in writing and expression. By introducing different writers with different writing techniques, students will become better readers and cultivate critical thinking skills.

Public Speaking and Leadership Course by Dr.T 

Dr.T.PNG

Dr. T is an award-winning public speaking instructor and educator. He holds a doctoral degree in educational leadership from the University of Toronto. He has over 35 years of experience as an actor, director, teacher, school principal and owner of theatre companies. Currently, he is doing research related to education and public speaking. He is also an adjunct professor in drama education.

Why do we need to develop public speaking and leadership skills?

 

Many children perform well in academic settings but lack communication skills, a sense of humor, and excellent leadership skills. The latter, an important soft power for further studies in college and success in the workplace, is an essential skill to develop.

 

This "Public Speaking and Leadership" training camp will not only improve students' public speaking skills but will also help them develop their critical thinking and communication skills. These are very important when developing as a leader.
