Young Authors Day

Your students' original stories come to life through mime!

mime young authors day writing workshop school assembly program

Young Authors Day,
one of Mobile Ed's most popular programs, is designed to support and enhance the creative writing curriculum. This rewarding day begins with an all school assembly by a classically trained Mime artist introducing students to the "art of silence" - mime.

During the program the performer discusses the differences between writing for the stage and writing for the page. He stresses the importance of structure and he tells the students where he got his inspiration for his stories.

Afterwards, the students return to their classrooms to write stories for the performer. During the writing process the performer stops in classrooms to answer questions and help with the writing. The day culminates with an afternoon assembly in which the students are recognized for their fine work as selected stories are acted out by the performer.

Young Authors Day is a fascinating educational experience designed to stimulate the imagination in all of us!

A Great School Assembly Performer is Headed for Texas!
I have written before on occasion about a good friend and a truly magnificent school assembly performer, Toma the Mime. Toma was recently at Fisher Elementary in Speedway, Indianapolis. I just got off the phone with Kathryn Richards the principal there, and ... wow! 

Fisher has had many programs from us over the years but in the past they have always favored the living history characters like Lincoln and Martin Luther King. And they have always loved them! But they had never seen Toma before. Toma does our Young Author's Day school assembly. And he is really good! Ms. Richards was so excited she could hardly finish her own sentences! She told me of veteran teachers who... Read the whole article!
