Kickstart Creative Writing: A Workshop for Teachers!
Welcome to a unique opportunity for teachers across all subjects and levels - both primary and post-primary!
Fighting Words and Oide Creativity have teamed up to design an interactive, engaging, and informative workshop, focused on creative writing and its application in the classroom.
This workshop is not just about learning new methodologies, but also about experiencing the joy and possibilities of creative writing first-hand.
Our key objective is to explore how creative writing can be integrated into various subject disciplines to make learning more interactive and fun. We believe that teachers, across ALL disciplines, are creative individuals who have the power to inspire creativity in their students. This creativity can help to change the way we teach and learn.
This workshop will allow you to engage in a creative writing workshop yourself, thereby enabling you to understand the potential this medium holds. You will get the chance to write, share, and receive feedback, all in a safe and encouraging environment.
We will be discussing various creative methods and techniques that you can take back to your classrooms. You will be equipped with fresh ideas and innovative tools that will help your students express themselves better, thereby enriching their learning experience.
We are hosting two sessions of this workshop, and you are welcome to join either or both of them.
- Kildare: The first session will be held on Saturday, 25th November, from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm at the Kildare Education Centre.
- Limerick: The second session will be on Saturday, 2nd December from 10:30am to 2:30pm, at the Limerick Education Centre.
Each session will be a blend of learning and hands-on activities. You will be engaged in writing exercises that will stimulate your thought process and unleash your creative potential. You will also get the opportunity to reflect on your teaching methodologies and brainstorm new ways to incorporate creative writing in your lessons.
