Goal

To introduce Creative Writing to our after school Promise Time Program in order to increase the student's writing ability in 3rd-5th grade. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will be introduced to the creative writing process by one of the after school tutors. These students will meet with the tutor on a weekly basis to edit and revise their writing.  

 

Benefits to my students

The benefit these students will gain will be a more in depth understanding of the writing process. This understanding will lead to a joy of writing as well as increased scores on the Writing portion of the FSA. We anticipate that this extra writing will give the students the needed push to move them to the next level on their FSA. 

 

Describe the Students

New Heights Elementary is a Title I school where all of our students are on Free breakfast and lunch. We also serve dinner to our students in our after school program, as well as our ELP program. We have a very diverse population with 38% White, 24% Black, 13% Asian, 19% Hispanic, and 6% Multiracial. We had 40% of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders show proficient on the FSA this past year with 26 students being less than 5 points away from moving to a level 3.
