Composition and the Writing Process—Comparing Shakespeare Plays (9th-12th)

Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(102)
Learn how to brainstorm, organize, draft, and revise a composition by comparing different retellings of Shakespeare's plays in a workshop environment.

Class Experience

Learning to write well involves a lot of practice, which is what this class is about. Through this class, students will learn about the writing process and organization of compositions. Although certain methods will be taught, students will be encouraged to use their own words and to adjust the process as they desire for their individual needs (for example, some writers create a first draft as a sort of brainstorm and then organize what they want to say while other writers organize first and then write a first draft).
I love to help students to organize their thoughts and arrange their words to clearly share their ideas. I have taught English Composition at the college level and have tutored English for college students and middle schoolers. I encourage my students to stretch and to grow in order to reach their potentials. In some cases, I have helped students who began a class with D work to finish the class with B and A work.
Some writing and revising will happen in class; however, students will have some reading, drafting, and revising to do outside of class. Time spent outside of class will vary depending on the week and on the student but should be between 0-2 hours.
Students will need paper and a writing utensil or a computer for in-class writing exercises as well as homework assignments.
Students will need to access the Outschool classroom in order to download handouts and read their classmates’ works.
Handouts will be supplied on a class-by-class basis.
Should the parent desire an evaluation, I can write an informal assessment of the student's progress which the parent may use in assigning a grade. Please inform me before class begins if you would like this type of assessment.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
If you have any concerns over the content of Shakespeare's plays, please contact me before class.
We will use various public domain retellings of Shakespeare's plays. In most cases, these will be provided by the instructor. In some cases, students may be asked or may desire to download the ebook versions themselves from websites such as and
