Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will improve their creative writing skills, how to build tension within a story, sentence structure, spelling, punctuation and grammar. Students will then be able to apply the skills learnt in various writing exercises and tests and exams.
Non applicable to this class
There will be homework where students apply skills learnt in class - all worksheets will be provided on the class page. Students will then be asked to bring their work along to the following class and if they are happy to, share their work with the group. Or they can send me their work via message.
All extracts and any handouts will be provided that can be printed off.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Through the tasks set in class and homework, through my own observations, I will give verbal feedback to students and if parents wish I will happily provide written feedback on students performance.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There is one short video clip we will watch from Woman in Black which is rated a 12A in the UK, there is no inappropriate content in this short clip- it will be focusing on how tension is built in the scene through setting and sounds. The extracts we will be looking at will be age range appropriate, again focusing on building tension and the literary devices used.
We will refer to some short extracts from Gothic Horror novels, where we pick out various literary devices used such as similes, metaphors etc and then discuss the impact this has on the reader.
