Class Experience

In a few words the students will learn almost everything it takes to write and sell their first screenplay. From building characters, to plot lines, and the climax. The students can also use that knowledge to write a novel because some of the lessons transfer over. They can use that knowledge to either go attack the industry themselves or have a leg up when they go to film school. 
Homework will be simple writing exercises completely individually. Homework for each class should only take about an hour. 
Will need a screenwriting software that will be discussed in the portal before the class starts. As well anything that the student may use to take notes. Something like Microsoft or google docs or a big notebook.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Although grades aren't everything I will be handing out grades for participation in class as well as for the homework on a scale of 0-100%. 
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
