Your yearly subscription to the Frederick Douglass Writing Club (Writing for freedom since 1838) gets you unlimited access to exclusive BARS (Bomani Armah wRiting System) content and one ticket to a Frederick Douglass Writing Club show and workshop to redeem when you want.
The FDWC is a club for 4th grade to 8th grade students, focused on reading and writing, with an emphasis on the life and career of Frederick Douglass as well as Hip-Hop music and culture. The FDWC is an online community that also meets in person for writing workshops, book clubs, field trips, and performances.
The writing workshops are conducted using the BARS curriculum. BARS (the Bomani Armah wRiting System) 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 BARS curriculum is fun and innovative!
