Welcome to Writing Matters!
Writing Matters is a program that will help children of the South Florida area become more confident, skilled writers in and beyond school. This concept was generated by Broward County teachers, Linda Gray and Rose Wyda, who recognized the need for effective writing instruction for all students. Athena Carlin became a partner in 2009.
Writing Matters will be dedicated to offering a variety of stimulating and unique activities to help students, parents, and teachers nurture an appreciation for books, authors, and written expression.
The heart of our program begins with our experienced staff. As teachers, we understand the value of exceptional lessons geared toward enhancing a child’s ability to write effectively. Our exemplary writing teachers will facilitate exciting hands-on writing experiences using a variety of resources and materials.
Writing Matters will address the needs of improving writing for the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test – Florida Writes, while recognizing and rewarding the value of writing as a life-long skill.
