Description

Class Experience

-Have fun writing
-Understand that constructive criticism can make them better writers, but at the same time, I find their stories fascinating. Receiving suggestions doesn't mean what they wrote was bad in any way.
-Learn tips throughout such as plot, characters, setting, tons of descriptive techniques, sentence structure, parts of speech, how to write dialogue, brainstorming, and much more.
I have a bachelor's degree. I teach many things on Outschoool, but I have always been a writer. I've published a story about local ghost stories in my hometown. I've written a cookbook and a children's book. I've always been a creative person, which is one reason kids love my classes. I work really hard to make them fun, while teaching at the same time.
No homework unless they just want to continue working on their story.
 2 files available upon enrollment
paper, pen, or pencil, or use Google Docs, which is approved by Outschool.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental guidance as they will write about a variety of things. I do spooky but not horror, but sometimes the kids want to make it horrible. Sometimes, there could be a phobia they have. Like clowns, although I have no intention about any story prompt about clowns. I don't like them myself. 
Also, Google Docs may be used to write documents, which is an approved resource of Outschool. It provided COPPA privacy policy for children under 13. They are not required to use it. Also, if they do use Google Docs and want me to see their work, they can share a link in the Outschool classroom for me to see it. Only someone with the link can access the document.
