Students will learn the basic elements of fiction while creating ideas and content to fit these elements.

Students will be expected to continue to write their short stories outside of our class time and bring this writing to class for review, reflection and revision. Prewriting and planning will take place in class together.
Writing instrument and a notebook for brainstorming and development of stories.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
