How can universities support school students to write about social justice issues? - Report of a Workshop
On 29 June 2017, The 'Writing Wrongs' workshop brought together academics, writers and a range of other individuals with experience of teaching in schools and/or organising activities for school students from disadvantaged backgrounds. We asked 'How can universities support school students to write about social justice issues?' This report of our workshop summarises our discussions and key findings.
Crucially workshop attendees all agreed that there is significant added value in a national network of universities offering opportunities for school students from disadvantaged backgrounds to develop their skills in writing about social justice issues. The writing Wrongs Project will now take the next steps towards making that happen. Please contact James Harrison (J.Harrison.email@example.com) if you would like to find out more.
