Class Experience

Learners will:  
  • Learn about various figures of speech and incorporate these into their stories.
  • Enhance their work by learning to write more descriptively. 
  • Expand their creative writing skills. 
  • Write stories and build their personal story notebooks. 
  • Share their stories and practice their public speaking skills if they choose to do so. 
  • Make friends and feel comfortable and confident in our class. 
I am a certified teacher and previously taught 5th grade in a public school. I enjoy teaching and learning with the students. I am excited to help learners enhance their writing skills in my class. 
There is no homework required outside of class. However, learners are always welcome to continue writing their stories during the week if they would like to do so. They are also welcome to send photos or type their stories and send them to me. I will read them and make comments. 
Learners will need a pencil and paper. They may choose to use a notebook to keep everything together or to use loose paper. They may want a separate notebook for their stories and writings and something different to use for note-taking and such - it is just personal preference.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
