Authors Creative Experience (ACE) is an ongoing writing course where learners develop their writing skills through grammar exercises, self-editing, editing the work of others, collaborating with fellow students, and sharing their work.

US Grade 7 - 10
Students will learn when to follow or break grammar rules. They will edit and critique works. Learners will learn to identify active and passive voices and determine when to use each one. They will develop characters, write dialogue, and create worlds from words.
I am an author with books published in both fiction and non-fiction genres. I am also a professional artist. I consider words to be as much of an artistic tool as paint and brushes. 

As a child, I loved to write stories and poems; I even enjoyed the writing assignments in school. I studied psychology and biology in college. But I loved English so much that I took literature and creative writing classes for fun. I ended up with a degree in psychology with a concentration in English and biology. (Facepalm: I later discovered that I was just three credits shy of earning a degree in English, too.) 

I have a profound love and respect for the power and potential of words. I am excited to help your learner release their creative energy and use their words to change the world around them.
Homework Offered
Students can work on their writing projects outside of class. This is not mandatory, but they can finish or refine a writing element in preparation for the next class.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Assessments will be given through gaming challenges and class activities. The goal will be for students to chart their progress, not to receive a grade.
Grades Offered
Students will need a pen and paper or writing software on their computers. I will present the option of using free editing apps.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
We will use Grammarly, a free writing app, and  Canva, a free graphics design website.
