Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School

Cheryl Ware at B-U Middle

Ms. Cheryl Ware, a local author, visited Buckhannon Upshur Middle School this December. She came prepared to address topics such as argumentative and persuasive writing to creative writing.

Faculty Senate graciously helps pay for Ms. Ware to visit every year. She presents two day creative writing workshops with all 6th grade English students. The students are introduced to her writings and enjoy listening to how she came up with the stories and characters of her books.

With the changing of standards, Ms. Ware presented a two day lesson on narrative writing based on true events. This year she focused on the "uninvited guests" that took up residence in her home over the summer, AKA honey bees. Ms. Cheryl Ware enjoys her time at Buckhannon Upshur Middle School and hopes to return next year to continue her workshops.
