Daily Creativity is our right. With it, we renew, thrive and embolden ourselves and our communities. This creative writing session will deep dive into creative tips and motivational tools that can boost and expand student writing through inspirational prompts, rich-text models and hands-on practice. From crafting a personal creative manifesto to brainstorming a literary piece (flash fiction, prose poem or micro- memoir), participants will explore how to help students develop daily creative writing habits and accountability checklists. Like Maya Angelou wrote, “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Get more. Share more.

This is one of three webinars done in partnership with the Chicago Teachers Union Foundation's Quest Center, the premier professional development provider supporting Chicago’s public school educators through re-licensure, National Board Certification, and endorsements. Each webinar will be conducted by one of their esteemed PD trainers.

Professional Credit

Available for 1.5 hours of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.

Share My Lesson is now a New York State Education Department-approved provider for Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) requirements and an Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) approved Professional Development provider.

Speakers

Jen Cullerton Johnson

Teacher, Author, and founder of Books on Benches 
Jen is a proud Chicago Public Schools teacher and union member. She is the author of several published books, essays, and short stories for children and adults, including the children’s book Seeds of Change, a Coretta Scott King award winner.
Educated at University of New Orleans (MFA), Loyola University of Chicago (MEd) and Indiana University (BA), she has been awarded grants and fellowships for her writing and speaking. In 2020, in response to the lack of accessible quality children's books found in waiting rooms of family courts, judges chambers, attorney offices, Jen established the non-for-profit Books on Benches.
