Creative Writing provides an environment for writers to nurture their creativity among faculty and peers. Students focus on the aesthetic aspects of writing and participate in a wide variety of readings and events. Fiction, nonfiction, or poetry are the usual areas of specialization. These disciplines are developed through individual mentoring, group discussions, and workshops. Activities at school further encourage imaginative writing skills of our students. At AWS, we encourage students to appreciate the writings of different genres and inculcate them in their own writing styles.
There is no doubt that the use of language shaped mankind to its present level of progress. The ability to communicate has often acted as a medium to help bring people closer together. Excellent communication skills is an art in itself and mastery over it is a gift. At AWS, we look forward to build in this skill effectively among our students.
As an important step for teaching public speaking for children, we encourage them to look up and speak with confidence. Good public speakers do not have their face buried in their notes. But looking at the audience when you speak can be scary. So we train them to become effective public speakers. AWS offer numerous platforms for public speaking skills. Debates, extempore, JAM sessions and Oral exercises in the Language Learning Centres are directed towards this motive.
It’s an excellent and necessary means of self-expression. Poetry necessitates scratching below the surface, plumbing emotions students are often afraid to share with their peers. Students will often reveal long-hidden troubles they’d be otherwise reluctant to divulge through poetry.
Teachers feel they have a much deeper and fuller understanding of their students after reading their students’ poems. We encourage children at AWS to express themselves through poetry.
Teachers frequently gives feedback that they have a much deeper and fuller understanding of their students after reading their students’ poems. It encourages a closer sense of community forming in a classroom where students regularly share their own poetry. Poetry is a much freer form than prose writing. Even students with limited language skills can excel at poetry. It’s been seen that second- and third- graders who could barely write a sentence later compose awesome poems.
