This weekly creative writing workshop for high school students offers students time to develop their unique voices, skills, and build confidence.

Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
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 Offered
If 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
Assessments Offered
I will assess learning during class discussions and help students work through any challenges.
Grades Offered
 2 files available upon enrollment
Students 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. I use Nearpod for many of my classes. If I am using a Nearpod presentation, a link to access the interactive lesson will be posted in the classroom. Parents will also receive a handout explaining how to use Nearpod. Students do not have to sign up for Nearpod to access the lesson.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Nearpod- I sometimes use Nearpod (a free website) in my classes to provide interactive ways for students to engage in the material. My lessons may include educational YouTube videos in the Nearpod lesson. Students can only see and engage with the videos and materials I choose. I guide them through the lesson. Nearpod also allows students to annotate the texts we're reading, listen to the text if they are auditory learners, and interact with each other through a collaborative board. These activities are only available during class and while I am on-site with them. 
I use a variety of young adult literature and interviews with authors to help students learn about writing.
