EMU Writers Workshop

Eastern Michigan University came to Romulus Middle School on January 31st to work with students. Students had the opportunity to participate in a Writers Workshop. Students were able to visit different stations around the media center to learn about writing recipes, creating 6-word memoirs, writing and illustrating comic strips, and creating secret codes. The stations were both engaging and educational. After visiting the stations, there was time at the end for students to share out to the group.
