Description

Class Experience

As the class goes on students will get practice in:
•	Organizing their thoughts with pre-writing exercises
•	Reading their work out loud
•	Listening to their peers in an engaged and respectful way
•	Giving articulate, respectful, and helpful feedback to their peers
•	Developing focus and concentration on a task
•	Letting their creative ideas flourish
•	Exciting collaborative engagement with other students 
•	Learning elements of novel plot structure 
This workshop is for teens who find fun in a creative challenge. There's so much to write about--new characters, new creatures, new adventures--your teen won't want to stop even after writing time is over.  The collaborative world building element of creating their own haunted world creates a bond between students that they won't forget.
None.
Students should have access to writing paper and pen for each workshop class. We want to put our inner critic away--it's too easy to erase words on the computer. Tip: have a folder on hand so you can put stories from the workshop together at the end of each day.
Students are keenly aware of their peer's reactions to their work. They know when everyone is listening breathlessly.  They know when everyone is excited about their writing. Positive reinforcement for strong writing from the group encourages students to write at a more challenging level.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
