This is a class for all ages and abilities! Expect your students to be excited about writing no matter their age or ability.

These beautiful letters contain stories, riddles and assignments that will inspire them! Students will receive a Daily Prophet Student Intern I.D. Card necklace that they can keep at the end of the semester, along with trinkets and special items they find along their research.  Students will also have multiple newspapers with their contributions printed to take home throughout the semester.
