At The Dow House

The Seven Grade Writing Program, At the Dow House, is a collaborative program developed by the Alden B. Dow Home and Studio and Midland Public Schools. The program meets Common Core State. Standards for writing, while providing a unique and stimulating environment for students to participate in the process of writing. This is achieved by offering authentic, thought-provoking  scenarios in each room at the Home and Studio that suggest that something may have happened in that room.  Every student is given the opportunity to explore the spaces and are challenged to develop sensory details and inferences into a writing piece. This program welcomes over 600 student writers each year, and has met with great success.
