At my School there is a student writing center where certified students can tutor and help other students with their writing and ideas. Students go and present their idea and the tutor helps develop and critique the idea or paper. there are almost always tutors available and they are very helpful, plus the writing center is open at very convenient hours for the students. I want to take this further and have teacher and student mentors help the writer turn their writing into something that could used, like a book to be published.
In this challenge, we want to create ideas with young people, not for them. Outline how you’re planning to involve young people or other end-users (parents, teachers, etc) in designing, iterating or testing your idea during the Ideas phase.
Have teachers at your school set up a place where students can write and feel free to express their ideas with constructive criticism. Set aside an empty class room at night for a few hours where either professors and students alike can help tutor young writers and help them see where their writing can actually be used.
