Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the writer's toolbox, including imagery, simile, metaphor, personification, alliteration, hyperbole, and onomatopoeia, through group brainstorming, discussion of creative writing examples, and individual practice. Each student will build up their writer's voice, as they focus on diction, syntax, figurative language, and stylistic choices to describe a scene with a consistent mood.
There is no official homework, but each student will be encouraged to add their scene description to our classroom and respond to the other students throughout the week.
Each student should have a notebook and pencil or a computer/device to compose their descriptions.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
