Description

Class Experience

Students will create three different short stories over the course of this class.
I am the author of fifteen books for tweens and teens, and have taught creative writing classes across the country at schools, libraries, colleges, and camps.
Students will have one week to write each story; they must be posted to the classroom at least 24 hours before the next live meeting.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week 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 expected 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 virtual backgrounds.
-I keep all students muted to prevent background noises from becoming distracting. If a student would like to ask a question, add to the conversation, or merely share an idea, they simply need to raise their hand, and I will unmute them as quickly as possible!
-The Zoom chat is set to "host only", meaning students can chat with me, but not to one another or the entire classroom.
