İhsan Doğramacı Foundation Bilkent Erzurum Laboratory School prepares our students for the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) exam by analyzing writing and creating original stories in the grade 9 and 10 Turkish classes.
A creative writing workshop with Sinan Sülün, a successful writer, storyteller, and educational consultant, who made a name for himself with his strong pen in our literature, was hosted by Bilkent Erzurum Laboratory High School. The writer Sinan Sülün, whom we know with his books, Karahindiba and Kırlangıç Dönümü, shared his knowledge and experiences on writing fictional texts with 10th-grade students and made significant contributions to the preparation process of the IGCSE Turkish exam that the students will take in May. In the first part of the two-part workshop, Sinan Sülün gave information about the techniques of creating a fictional text and helped the students develop their creative writing skills. In the second part, Sinan Sülün answered the students’ questions about his literary works and told them about his experiences during his writing adventure. In an interactive and pleasant working atmosphere, the 10th-grade students had a productive day and improved their writing skills with the sincere assistance from the writer Sinan Sülün.
