Curious about the Frog Hollow philosophy? Read this article by director and educator Becca Hall on working with reluctant writers.
AN IMMERSIVE LANGUAGE ARTS EXPERIENCE:
The curriculum integrates arts, music, social studies, mythology, and ecology into a solid core of language arts. Through a mix of writing, art projects, stories, singing, creative play, and outdoor exploration, students receive a firm foundation in creative writing, rhetoric, grammar, spelling, and literature. Part of each day is also spent at the park playing and exploring nature.
Frog Hollow is experiential and interest-led. Students work at their own pace in a mixed-age environment that fosters mutual respect and the joy of learning. Class meets for a full school day once a week.
“I sent to Frog Hollow an exceptionally reluctant writer – honestly, I was at the end of my rope – and Becca Hall returned to me a poet, a novelist, a playwright, a field guide researcher, and a kid who “sneak writes” when she should be sleeping.” ~ Elisa, Parent
