Website: We The Children
Activity: Teaching children to write an autobiography
Time Required: Volunteer for two hours one afternoon or apply to become a teacher
Skills Required: Love of Writing
Attire: Various – dress like a teacher or wear a t-shirt and jeans, but be clean and don’t wear anything vulgar.
The Goods: Remember all those grammar rules from elementary school? No. Don’t worry the kids barely remember them and they are currently learning them in class. Might be a good idea to reread part of the MLA Handbook though because being “schooled” in grammar by a 4th grader isn’t fun.
