It's the perfect time of year to come together and tell some ghost stories, wouldn't you agree?

Students will be able to compare and contrast stories in the same genre on their approach to similar topics. Students will be able to analyze literary text development. Students will be able to analyze how visual elements contribute to the meaning, tone, mood, or appeal of a text. Students will be able to engage effectively in collaborative discussions.
In the second week, learners will be assigned to write a short ghost story. They will learn about the expectations in our live meeting that week. This homework shouldn't take longer than an hour to complete, unless students are having fun and want to work longer. The story should be at least one page.
Some lined paper (for week 2 and 3) A writing tool
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
If students have a copy or want to borrow a copy from the library, they could read along. This is optional, they don't need a copy.
