For Wings of Fire mega-fans and series newcomers alike! In this class, students will learn the basics of plot, character, description, and conflict-- but above all else have fun and play with words and writing as they each create their own Wings of Fire short story. Writing within a familiar world is not only fun, but can be a great way to learn the basics of writing and critical reading in an established place that students are already enthusiastic about. In our live class each week, I'll...
Students will learn about writing fundamentals through the lens of Wings of Fire, and create their own Wings of Fire short story over the course of the six-week class.
I am the author of fifteen books for tweens and teens, including the PIP BARTLETT'S GUIDE TO MAGICAL CREATURES series (Scholastic), the ELLIE, ENGINEER series (Bloomsbury), and the DOUBLECROSS series (Bloomsbury). I have taught creative writing classes across the country at schools, libraries, colleges, and camps!
Each week, students will work on their Wings of Fire short story outside of class. During class, we will focus on feedback and lessons on writing!
5 files available upon enrollmentIt is strongly recommended that students read at least one book from the WINGS OF FIRE series before class begins. We will do our best to avoid spoilers for later books!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
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.
