Advanced Writing Skills
Advanced Writing Skills (AWS), Program Overview
Serving Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Lehigh, Montgomery, Monroe & Northampton Counties
Created to be a supplement to classroom learning, the AWS curriculum is PA standards based to support learners needing extra support. For students who are identified as English as a second language learners or for students who need to build confidence in their writing, Community Partners 4 Kids’ AWS program is here as an extra resource for your students and school.
Created by Dr. Nikki Broome, PhD and Deb Colitas, MS Education, every detail of the AWS program was scrutinized to properly add needed practice, examples, and experience for your students. Students between the grades of 5th and 8th are the targeted audience for our program.
Regular writing is key to developing and increasing a comfort level in writing. The maintenance of a notebook is a critical piece of AWS in building confidence and skills. In the AWS classroom students will be required to write every day, including days in which they are not meeting, adding to their story about each topic.
We anticipate the students selected to participate in this special after-school program would meet twice weekly for 90 minutes each, meeting for a ten (10) week period.
