Nurturing Young Short Story Writers

previouspausenext

The Centre for Enhancing English Learning and Teaching (CEELT), Faculty of Education, organized the ‘Developing Young Short Story Writers in Secondary Schools in Hong Kong—A University-School Partnership Programme’ from February 2011 to June 2012. Funded by the CUHK Knowledge Transfer Project Fund, the programme involved 1,400 Secondary 2 students and 40 English teachers from 10 local schools.

The programme was aimed at developing teachers’ skills in teaching short-story writing and promoting a constructive, interactive and student-centred learning environment through collaborative writing. The participating teachers were trained at a workshop run by Prof. Barley Mak, director of CEELT, on how to motivate and guide their students through the process of writing short stories, while the students attended a workshop on the basic skills of short-story writing.

The highlight of the programme was a short-story writing competition held from February to March 2012. The competition received positive response with over one thousand students participating in the individual and collaborative categories. A prize presentation ceremony was held on 21 April.
