Writer Coach Connection

Posted November 11, 2014 By sara
Parents: If you like writing & editing and would like to work one-on-one with a handful of students, please consider volunteering as a Writer Coach at Albany Middle School.  Fringe benefit: you get a look at the middle school – and you learn more about the major 8th-grade project.

WriterCoach Connection brings teams of trained volunteers to the school to work with every 8th-grader on the i-search project. This year we will coach for eight weeks, from Feb. 3 to April 2.  Volunteers coach in one class per week (1 hour, 40 minutes), for a total commitment of less than 15 hours.

We provide the training in two 3-hour sessions scheduled for December and January.

Please check out this two-minute compelling video:

Signing up online should only take two minutes:
