Create Your Own Characters & Write Your Own Story- Curious Thoughts Academy’s Public Creative Writing Workshop 2017

Description

DESCRIPTION

In this workshop, the author of "Where is Dan?", Lydia Lok will share writing tips on how she created the story, and also how the food characters from her book were developed. Participants will then be guided to develop their own characters too.


Co-taught with her husband Yao Shuohan (MOE-trained teacher), this workshop will be taught using her picture books, and will help children to identify elements in a narrative structure, such as plot, characters, setting, theme and point of view (to build up suspense and conflict). Participants will also be given the opportunity to write a story featuring their own characters.


> Suitable for children aged 7 to 12 years old.

> $5 workshop fee

ABOUT CURIOUS THOUGHTS ACADEMY


At Curious Thoughts Academy, children learn to be curious, critical thinkers with our through-train English curriculum for children aged 2.5 to 16 years old. We are a Victoria Carlton Literacy Centre and we aim to transform how kids read, write and comprehend effectively with our Phonics and STAR programme. Our flagship programme is the Students at Risk Targeted Intervention (STAR) Programme that helps children with reading difficulties to transition from pre-primary to primary school, helping them get ready for the MOE primary school syllabus.


Centrally located at 51 Waterloo Street, Curious Thoughts Academy is run by husband-and-wife team Yao Shuohan and Lydia Lok.


Teacher Lydia is a professionally certified Victoria Carlton Jolly Phonics teacher who has been teaching young children Jolly Phonics for many years.

Her books has been distributed to over 700 children and is used as a teaching aid in local primary schools. She was also invited to be a part of Talking Books on 93.8FM’s with Michelle Martin.


With a teaching career of over a decade in St. Joseph's Institution, Swiss Cottage Secondary School, and Riverside Secondary, Teacher Shuohan is a sought-after teacher for his ability to teach the English language in a clear, easy-to-understand manner, paired with fun and engaging lesson plans. His students have consistently shown remarkable improvement in English and Literature and he is well-known in Singapore for coaching ESL students who come to Singapore with a weak grasp of English, turning them to become confident English speakers and writers.
