The Telling Room

The 6th grade will visit the nationally recognized Telling Room in Portland, to spend a morning as a working writer.  Students will be trained in interview skills and take to the streets of Portland in small groups to seek out the stories of locals and tourists alike. Groups will return to the studio to put their materials together and write!  The goal of the field trip is to seek to build confidence, and strengthen interpersonal and literacy skills.
