Shepherds Expressive Writing Workshop is underway for Freshmen and Sophomores. Presented by Ms. Nancy Day, Journalist, Professor & Chair of Journalism Department at Colombia College, Chicago and Ms. Allison Waggener, Yale University Graduate and Writing Coach, students got expressive and even active as they participated in exercises such as acting out expressive verbs and learned about the differences between “showing” v. “telling” a story in their writing.

Students have completed 3 out of the 5 Wednesdays that focus on “Expressing Yourself Effectively!”. Students will continue to develop techniques for distilling their ideas in writing in a clear and concise manner. They goal at the end of the workshop is for each student to effectively and expressively tell their personal story.
