June with the RRVWP

Below are the Red River Valley Writing Project's events for June. Please join us for as many as you can!

Sentence Sense class: June 16-17 in Fargo and June 23-24 in Grand Forks
Instructors: Nancy Devine and Pam Fisher

Learn how to write more effectively through generating quality sentences. In this class, participants will explore various sentence writing strategies, analyze models for sentence generation, examine sentence-level syntax, learn to manipulate syntax to create varying effects for readers, and explore how sentences relate to each other. Participants will generate their own sentences, analyze them, revise them, and discuss the strategies used. They will also consider how sentence strategies can be used to scaffold students K-12.

On June 26-27th, there will be an Authentic Voices Writing Workshop for the community at Barry Hall located on NDSU's downtown Fargo campus.

The book release and film screening will take place on Friday evening. There will be several RRVWP teachers leading small writing workshop groups on Saturday, the 27th. You are welcome to join us for the writing activities and/or share this information with your school and community.

Grand Forks Book Club: For June, we’ll be reading The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy and meeting at Andrea’s house on Saturday, June 27th, at 1:00 pm to partake in some red food. Other upcoming titles include: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and El Deafo by CeCe Bell.
