Teen Writers Group

Is your teen an amazing writer? Do they like history? Our Teen Writers Group is a group of teens who create content for SchoolhouseTeachers.com. Currently, they are working on creating short stories for our This Day in History course. Membership to the site is not required. If you would like more information about what is required to join the Teen Writers Group, please contact Bonnie Rose Hudson, our site director, at bhudson@theoldschoolhouse.com.

These teens have written the following stories for our This Day in History course. This Day in History leads your family on an exploration of history from ancient times through today with worksheets, living book lists, short fiction, discussion and research questions, hands-on activities, upper grade options, and more. This is a perfect way to work a little history into your day. Topics include everything from serious historic events to fun facts such as the birthday of the man who invented the salad bar! Our teens are creating short stories for numerous historical events to help bring them to life for your students. Come take a look at all of the This Day in History resources.
