Writing Assembly --
One-hour pre-test prep!
3rd-5th grade
Audience size: 100-150
45-60 minutes

In this assembly-style program, Chris and students collaborate on improvised scenes based on suggestions provided by the students. 

Students turn non-descriptive sentences into improvised scenes by brainstorming and developing ideas

Students will learn the importance of word choice (vivid verbs and adjectives)

Students will learn how to develop ideas using the five senses and 5 W’s (who, what, when, where, and why).

Students discover how language comes to life when they develop the details (ideas) of a story or expository.

 

Not only will the students find writing to be an exciting experience, they will understand that the writing process can be defined by Espinosa’s one rule: “If you can THINK it, you can INK it!”








A Day of Writing--
(6 in-classroom sessions)
3rd-5th grade
Audience size: 25
45-60 minutes

In one day, Chris visits up to six classes of the same grade level each class of one grade level. Schools with more than six classes in a grade level can schedule additional days.

This program is identical to the assembly (description on the left), but with one difference – the use of theater arts. Students are out of their seats and on their feet participating in improv exercises. to enhance the writing process.

Lessons are aligned with Kennedy Center model for arts-integration. Each session is limited to on classroom per session which means Chris is able to involve more students. Perfect for pre-test preparation.

This program is also available as a 5-day residency.
