About this event

Leadership & Writing (this is a two-week camp) Week 1: Leadership for Future Innovators Is your child going to change the world? This class will give your student the opportunity to think about big ideas in a way they can digest and communicate their own big ideas to shape the future. Each class the student will watch a short TedTalk given by someone between ages 6-15 and engage in a critical analysis of the ideas presented within their cohort. Then students innovate their own new projects and share their ideas with their peers. This process will challenge their ideas and ultimately teach them about persuasion, public speaking, charisma, stage presence, clarity, and other leadership skills! Students will have a blast while learning fundamental skills that will help them in their future careers. FINAL PROJECT: Each student will write, perform, and record their own TedTalk which can be shared with their friends and family! Week 2: Critical Thinking and Creative Writing Our most popular program continues! ESoD offers the opportunity for students to delve even deeper into story design and creative writing! Once again, each class will begin with a screening of a previously unwatched animated short film (3-8 minutes), which will then be used to help students think critically to creatively write their own story over the duration of the entire class. Critical Thinking & Creative Writing II features more complicated and intricate narrative structures, more advanced logical exercises, and more opportunities for thinking out-of-thebox! FINAL PROJECT: Final stories written in this class will be published in an e-pub format that can be shared with students’ families and friends! Grades: 3–5 AM Session Week 6–7: July 5–15* Price: $480
