Class Experience

I have taught creative writing to children of all abilities for 18 years. It has always been a passion of mine to help students learn to express themselves creatively. I have found that using a book or series that the child already loves helps to spark the inspiration for great writing. 
The students should have access to a computer and should have read at least one of the Keeper of the Lost Cities novels. If they are an avid reader, they can read as the class progresses.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This series explores adolescent relationships and "crushes". I discuss some of these in week four's prompt video.
