Creative Writing: The Three Minute Challenge (Tween/Teen)

Get your creative writing juices flowing with this fun, social, and often wonderfully weird writing game in which we write three sentences in three minutes on two given topics, then share our work! Perfect for reluctant writers and readers as well as those eager to stretch themselves creatively, this class is a great way to make creative writing part of your learner's weekly routine.

Class Experience

The goal of this class is to eschew perfection in favor of creativity, fun, and progress. Students will learn to think on their feet, to be unapologetically weird, and to shout their ideas from the rooftops. Students who take this class regularly will be more willing to share ideas-- creative or otherwise-- with others, embrace imperfection, and experiment without fear. They will learn that failure is NOT the worst thing-- fear is! 
I am the author of fifteen published books for tween and teens, and have taught creative writing classes across the country in schools, libraries, colleges, and camps. This particular exercise is always a crowd favorite, and is fun for both reluctant and avid writers!

Students are expected to have a working microphone for the class, and requested to have working video. Exceptions can be made, of course, but please message me ahead of time.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Below are my general classroom rules and policies. These will also be explained to students when we begin class!
-For everyone's safety, and to ensure an engaging and social experience, students are required to have working microphones and video for the entirety of this class, positioned such that we can both hear and see them.
-Students are asked not to use filters or virtual backgrounds-- though if there is an important reason to use a virtual background, please just let me know ahead of time that your student will be using one (no questions asked!).
-Students will be asked to introduce themselves by sharing their name, pronoun, and a favorite book.
-The Zoom text chat is set to "host only", meaning students can chat with me, but not to one another or the entire classroom.
