"Write Out Loud" Literacy Camp 2013
For five enjoyable summer evenings in July 2013, 29 students, grades 6 - 12, from Hazlet Township and Middletown Township Public Schools, worked collaboratively with Monmouth University students in the 6th Annual Write Out Loud! Literacy Camp. Monmouth students enrolled in ED529 actively engaged the campers in the writing process to generate a final literacy-based project. The "Publication" event was the culmination of these varied but meaningful instructional activities and was well attended by parents, grandparents, brothers, and sisters as well as administrators from both school districts. The auditorium in Wilson Hall provided the perfect backdrop for this exciting night of celebrating the students' written work. The camp was coordinated by Prof. Kathleen Rapp with encouragement from Dr. Lynn Romeo and with special, and most appreciated, assistance from Administrative Assistant Cindy Bell.
