Like to write? No matter whether you answered YES, NOPE, or Meh- this class is for you! Creative writing helps us learn and like to write. This creative writing class will help you enjoy writing and build your writing skills. Each week, students are invited to become more proficient writers by writing. Most classes include at least 20 minutes of quiet writing time. Why? Because writing is the best way to learn how to write! I use creative writing prompts and exercises to help students...
Students will learn, practice, and play with creative writing. The aim of this class is to inspire writers to write, give them opportunities to share their writing, and offer tools to help them grow as writers.
I received my Secondary English teaching license in 2004. Since then, I have taught in public schools, private schools, and online. I currently teach ELL, ELA, and creative writing to students ages 4-84. I also homeschool my daughter. My teaching style is encouraging and creative. I want my students to learn how they learn best, to feel supported, and for reading and writing to be enjoyable.
Homework OfferedIf students want to get the most out of this class, they will dedicate at least an hour a week to writing. They are welcome and encouraged to work on projects of their choice during our writing time. I will not be giving assignments, but rather suggestions.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
1 file available upon enrollmentStudents will need something to write with a paper or a journal. Some sessions may offer activities where scissors, glue, and markers are needed. I'll let students know a week in advance if additional supplies are needed.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I use a variety of young adult literature and interviews with authors to help students learn about writing.
