Description

Class Experience

Students will learn revision techniques to cut unnecessary words from their writing. They will learn the specific words and types of words to cut/change to make their writing stronger and more vivid.
Students should prepare a scene from a writing project to work on in a separate word document during class.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In this class we will be editing students' writing via the techniques learned in class. If your student is sensitive about their writing ability, looking for ways to strengthen their writing may be off putting, or hurt their confidence. While this group is meant to support writers, some students who are just discovering their passion, or who are sensitive to constructive criticism, may need to start with a more basic class.
