Home Run Project: Kids Writing Workshop with Stan Friedmann
January 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-5$150
This is a six-week class for one hour each week from Sunday January 21st through March 1st from 11am-12pm. Please register at
The HOME RUN PROJECT was developed over twenty years ago as an entertaining and interactive learning program to help children (grades 3-6) improve listening skills and focus, encourage the love of reading and creative writing, and at the same time strengthen crucial life skills. The program is based on the true stories in THE MACMILLAN BOOK OF BASEBALL STORIES and THE GOOD GUYS OF BASEBALL co-authored by Stan Friedmann, Mike Levine, and Terry Egan—published by Simon and Schuster Books For Young Readers. Featured themes include: “Overcoming Obstacles,” ” Family Ties,” ” Making Tough Decisions,” ” The Power of Friendship,” ” Teamwork,” ” The Fun Factor,” The Love of Learning,” “Inclusion and Tolerance,” “Standing Up for Your Beliefs,” and more. Participants will have opportunities to become story-tellers through group discussions and writing exercises and will also learn about the importance of editing. The students will be asked to create original story ideas and write short stories that reflect the life lessons from the stories in the baseball books.
