We hosted a big 21st CCLC Published Authors Event where hundreds of students were celebrated for their accomplishments and received their published books with beaming smiles and pride! The great thing about the program is that it embeds and focuses on 21st century learning. Kids are problem solving and using strategies to make decisions as a group.
21st Century Students
It allowed our youth to work on their literacy skills in a fun creative way enhancing their interest in learning. It takes a special program to reach beyond the intended curriculum and teach youth to be considerate caring individuals. The staff were so impressed by the outcomes they are considering implementing the program during the school year!
Students are engaged in thorough lessons, where they experience the process of publication from start to finish. The program can be implemented alone, but also fits beautifully with any other writing program a school or district may be using with fidelity. The children walk away understanding perspective and how to be flexible thinkers.

As an educator, you're reading so many things throughout the day, you forget that there is a student on the other side who's really putting their energy, their effort, and their love into it. It's Project-Based Literacy! We often hear that students in STEM programs lack the communication skills to speak or write about their process and experience. With WRiTE BRAiN, students develop literacy and public speaking skills alongside critical thinking and problem-solving, equipping them to reflect on and take ownership of the experience of becoming an author.

Students compose short and long-form written narratives in English and in their native language. They share feedback with their fellow authors. Students are given a pre- and post-project survey, a selfassessment checklist, and present narratives orally throughout the process.

We measure English language acquisition in four domains: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Each student tends to master language in that order. I have always had the philosophy that if you can get your students to love what they are doing, they will learn more and develop habits that will last their entire lives.
When you love what you are learning, you put more passion and effort into it. They are motivated to write their books, proud of their accomplishments, confident in their ability and eager to continue writing. I believe the secret to the program is the creativity factor.

The Adult Education curriculum of the WRiTE BRAiN BOOKS narrative and creative writing program is designed to help adult students prepare for literacy courses at the collegiate level and beyond in an inspiring way that disguises academic writing and makes it more desirable. The study was divided into two parts, with the first four weeks devoted to students co-authoring books in small groups and the second to students writing one book independently.
Assessments were made through pre- and post-surveys administered prior to the beginning of the class and at the conclusion. A project-based learning approach was used throughout the process.
