Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
 In this class young authors will learn the basics of psychology that will help them create compelling and believable characters. 
Prof. Cheryl Carter is a professional writer, college professor (Writing and Creative Writing) and Writing workshop facilitator has developed this system as a result of her freelance experience and working with her college-aged writers. Moreover, she found she was teaching this material to her Outschool workshop students (ages 9-18) who were struggling to develop strong characters. She has also studied psychology in her graduate school and has serves as a high school counselor in the past. She also holds a Graduate Certificate in Counseling. While she has relevant experience in psychology, it should be noted this class stresses writing and, as such, is not a psychology class. In fact, the psychology, as it relates to this class, is more of a look at the character traits long established, especially by noteworthy well-known authors, such as William Shakespeare or Dr. Suess to make their characters stand out. Psychology is the word that aptly fits this course because we will be looking at human traits that young writers can use to make their writing richer. More importantly, I have employed these techniques in my freelance writing quite successfully over the last fifteen years.
