Class Experience

Students will learn how to use the mind mapping writing strategy to break through writer’s block and use that strategy to write a short story.
If students do not have the opportunity to finish their piece of writing during class, they can share it with me in the conversations tab. However, I do not require homework. If they do choose to share it, I can give them some feedback.
 1 file available upon enrollment
- print off the pdf worksheet given inside the course after sign up - OR a sheet of paper or a notebook that they use for writing (like a writing journal) -a pen or pencil -a highlighter
Informal feedback
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
