Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their writing skills and increase confidence in their writing abilities.
I am the published author of over 25 books for children and have sold over 30000 copies on Amazon since 2012. Book series include BE THE VET, EVIE AND THE VOLUNTEERS, HAZEL: THE CLINIC CAT, NILES AND BRADFORD, CLARA AND TUNI, AND THIRD GRADE OUTSIDER. I give school talks to students about the writing process and encourage the following of one's passions and commitment to hard work despite setbacks. I hope to foster a love of learning and to help students to find joy in their writing.

I recommend a notebook or journal for writing as well as a pencil. A separate tablet is fine if a student prefers writing electronically.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Canva slides are used by the teacher to present information to students. Students do not need a Canva account to view the slides.
