“This program is the single most effective vehicle for engaging students in the classroom. Not only does the work promote tolerance and understanding among adolescents, it creates an atmosphere and culture of compassion and understanding. When teens feel empowered to use and share their voice their lives change. In the meantime, they become better writers.”
– Francesca Cantarini, 8th grade teacher
“Writers Matters has opened the eyes of my students in ways that I could have never imagined. The focus, expression, insight, knowledge, ambition, and motivation to cultivate words and wisdom have been inspiring to me as their teacher. I never imagined growing up that I’d be the one to affect a person’s eternity, but everyday I see a future where I know I made a difference.”
– Erin Lynn Cunningham
As part of their mentoring experience, La Salle students will often collaborate with the middle school students they work with in the Writers Matter program in creating Digital Stories. Follow the below links for some examples of Digital Stories that are streaming online.
