On Tuesday 13, a select group of Catlin Gabel sixth graders visited the CatlinSpeak class to workshop articles and learn more about journalism.

The visit was a step in larger writing collaboration between the sixth grade and the CatlinSpeak staff.

The sixth graders who were selected brought articles they had written with them and worked with CatlinSpeak staff members to edit and strengthen their writing. The articles focused on their three-week experience in gender-separate classes and whether they felt the experience was conducive to their learning.

The CatlinSpeak newspaper has agreed to publish the students’ articles in a final print edition, which will be published near the end of the school year.

The newspaper hopes to continue strengthening the relationship with the sixth grade class next year.
