Description

Class Experience

Academic subjects supported: English language, writing composition, public speaking, math/counting, artistic expression, theatre/acting skills, earth science, social sciences, and environmental studies.
The instructor has been teaching English language and writing composition for six years, in addition to working in childrens' and professional theatre. She is a practicing songwriter and award-winning novelist. She holds a Master's in Organizational Leadership from Grand Canyon University, specializing in the promotion of effective teamwork and expansion of human potential. Previous students have successfully published their own works in addition to winning creative writing contests for youth. 		
Students will be provided time to create an original work while in the session, as well as a final opportunity to share their drafts or final works at the end. Students who choose not to read their poems out loud are welcome to post their writing in the classroom discussion board for teacher feedback after class. 

There is no homework outside of class time, though it is possible that slower writers may need extra time after class to finish their composition. Students are always welcome to post their final poem on the class discussion board for teacher or peer feedback if they choose not to present live.

All students will be asked to listen kindly and attentively to the final presentations when it is not their turn.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Please have for the first and every class: lined paper and pencil OR open Google or Word doc to type in as we go. In some cases, the teacher may invite upper-level students to contribute to a shared Google Doc. If necessary, the information will be posted in the classroom. Several attachments are included. These are visual organizers to assist with managing the structure of the poem. They ARE used in class, but don't have to be printed - students can view them on a separate screen if they desire to write with fewer restrictions or visual distractions. For those needing extra support, please print them to be written on. Thank you!
No formal grades are provided on this activity.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
