Class Experience

Students will learn the basic elements of fiction while creating ideas and content to fit these elements. Students will learn the importance of creating dynamic characters, a plot line with rising and falling action and resolution (or intentional lack thereof) as well as proper details that will make themes obvious and relatable to readers.
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.
The final product of our class, will be a complete short story created entirely by the student. Informal assessment of that story will include encouraging teacher feedback about their individual stories related to the Fall and/or Winter seasons. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
