We host school groups for on-site workshops during the school day. We invite teachers to choose from a wide range of programs, such as our Storytelling & Bookmaking workshop. We also invite teachers to collaborate with us in customizing workshops. Field trips may entail single or multiple sessions.
Please note: Field trips are offered for one class of 15-30 students at a time and may only be booked by the classroom teacher.
All field trips for the 2010-2011 school year have been booked. Please check in in August 2011 to be considered for the 2011-2012 school year. Thank you!
Choosing Your Own Adventure
For grades 4-8, 1 weekday session, 10:30-12:30pm
During this field trip, students explore the effect that characters' choices have on story. They will create an original choose-your-own-adventure story, follow its twists and turns, and write its multiple conclusions. At the end of this workshop, each student will take home a copy of the class's adventures, bound together in a pint-sized book.
Storytelling & Bookmaking
For grades 1-4, 1 weekday session, 10:30-12:30pm
Why should published authors be the only ones to experience the joy of seeing their work in print? At 826NYC we believe that everyone has a story to tell and we're going to do our best to see that these great stories get published. To do this we gather a group of extremely talented kids, pair them up with an artist of the highest quality, and together they create a bound book that they take home with them.
Writing for TV
For grades 5 and up, 1 weekday session, 10:30-12:30pm
Even the most reluctant writers can be expert storytellers. By exploring storytelling through television, we reveal that students know more about character development, dialogue, conflict, and resolution than they might think. In this field trip students create an original television sitcom and--with the help of a group of actors--see it come to life as it's being written.
