"REEL" WRITERS - FILM CAMP 2019!
We are pleased to share that the Near North School Board will once again be offering an exciting summer learning opportunity to grade 5, 6, 7, and 8 students - The ‘Reel’ Writers Film Camp!
'Reel' Writers registration is now open to grade 5-8 students in the NORTH, EAST and WEST regions.
The program is intended to serve students who may benefit from engaging, creative and collaborative learning experiences - developing the skills and literacies to support their future success! A team of camp instructors, lead by an experienced Ontario Certified Teacher will teach each program. Activities will enable students to explore ideas of interest as they develop new communication skills through reading, writing and media arts. A fun camp-like environment will help to foster a community of learners, increase levels of student engagement, and improve student efficacy.
Through the lens of 'film maker', students will develop literacy skills - generating, organizing and communicating their ideas for an intended purpose and audience.
- Activities are social and collaborative, developing skills to support future academic and life success.
- Participants will generate their own ideas and themes for learning.
- Students will bring their ideas to life through writing, fine art, photography and video.
- Camp activities run from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. each day from July 2nd - 19th.
