It was a day of achievement for kids at the Idaho Distance Education Academy (IDEA). On Tuesday, IDEA students gathered to read a book they published in collaboration with The Cabin’s Writers in the schools program.
“It is really great when students have these type of opportunities because they get to work with professional writers and learn the craft,” said Laurie Wolfe, IDEA’s director of curriculum and assessment. “This program gives students a broader audience to share their writing, which has real purpose and meaning.”
The Cabin employs professional writers –poets, fiction writers, playwrights, and non-fiction writers – to teach writing residencies in schools.
Students explain their experience in the video above.
