This fall, Young Authors Greenhouse will become a destination for elementary classroom field trips! Our Storytelling and Bookmaking: Conflict Resolution field trip provides a fun and exciting writing experience where students write stories to show our always-arguing twin bosses how to resolve conflict. At the end of the field trip, every student will leave with a bound copy of the book that they created!
This field trip covers story arc: characters, problem, setting, resolution; dialogue, description, ways to resolve conflict: share/listen to feelings, respect differences, empathize, brainstorm solutions.
This program will not only help students with important socio-emotional skills but will align with Common Core Writing Standards and Backpack of Skills: Writing Anchor Standards K-5: CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.3, Production and Distribution Anchor Standard K-5: CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.4, Backpack of Skills: Global and Culturally Competent Citizen and Effective Communicator
We book field trips on Monday and Wednesday mornings, 10am-12pm, September 16-December 2.
We take one class per field trip, grades 1-5.
We prioritize schools from zip codes identified in the Greater Louisville Project’s 2015 Report on Poverty, but any school within JCPS can participate. Our program is free of cost to schools.
Priority area 1 = 40212, 40203, 40202, 40210, 40211, 40215
Priority area 2 = 40208, 40213, 40214, 40218, 40219

Through our field trips, we foster partnerships with teachers and schools in the community and hope to stay connected beyond this one-time offering.
