In this one-time session, young writers will craft several short personal essays following prompts. Whether students come to write for fun or to keep their writing skills sharp, all are welcome!

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Students will learn about what a personal essay is, how writing a personal essay can be used as a form of self-expression and the academic applications of such writing. They will have the opportunity to briefly share their work if they wish. The goal is to help students get through writer's block, improve their writing skills, and to have fun! 
I am a licensed grade 5-12 ELA teacher and a professional magazine writer with a BA in Writing, Literature and Publishing. I work with students in grades K-8 in "real life," including middle school populations with higher social/emotional needs. I aim to create a creative, fun, and relaxed environment so students can learn and express themselves effectively. 
writing materials: pen/pencil and paper or a tablet
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Prompts will ask students to reminisce, dream and write about their own lives. While prompts will not refer to any sensitive topics, parents may wish to talk about or review what their students write in case they choose to write about anything that evokes a difficult emotion.
