Class Experience

Students will learn the components of a story. They will learn techniques for improving their descriptive language and build confidence in their writing skills. 
I have a BA in English Literature and a teaching certificate. 
Between each lesson students will work on their story. They should spend about 15-30 minutes on homework after each lesson. 
 3 files available upon enrollment
Learners will need to print out the worksheets before each lesson. They will also need plenty of lined paper and a pen or pencil.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
