The FDWC is a club for boys ages 8-13 to focus on writing and communication, with an emphasis on the life and writing of Frederick Douglass as well as using the B.A.R.S. creative writing system that uses Hip-Hop songwriting as to teach. The FDWC currently operates as both a class for homeschool boys during the week and as part of the Saturday School at E.W. Stokes elementary.
The B.A.R.S. curriculum shows students how a well-written essay resembles a well-written song, with the Main Idea being the thesis paragraph in an essay and a chorus/refrain/hook in a song, while the Supporting Details in an essay are just like the verses. The fun and innovative concepts of the BARS curriculum.
