Writing is something we have to do all the time regardless of what we do in life. I mean, writing a grocery list is technically writing. Writing a thoughtful message in a greeting card is writing. Yet, so many of us will be quick to say that we are not a writer. Why is that? Maybe something from our school experience has put a bad taste in our mouth? Quite possibly we have never learned the true power of writing, keeping instead our written creativity harnessed.
Writing is a part of my every day, no avoiding it. From writing episodes, to interview questions, to articles for publication, writing is a part of my life. And yet, I can find myself so frustrated so often. Thankfully, writer and educator Julie Bogart developed a program over 20 years ago that allow parents and children in a homeschool setting embrace the creativty that we are teeming with but sometime unsure of how to express it.
Join us today as Julie talks more about the program and how we all, regardless of our school setting, can learn strategies to take our expression to the next level.
