There's nothing like writing a sonnet by the sea, a haiku on a snowy hill, or maybe practice some personification in a tropical paradise. Nature can inspire writing because it allows you to quiet yourself, appreciate the beauty around you, and then create your own beauty through your writing. Unfortunately, writers are not always able to physically travel to an area they find inspiring. That's where virtual field trips come in! In this class, I will be your student's pilot, I mean, teacher,...
Students will be able to share aspects of nature and the world that they find inspiring. Students will learn about new places! Students will learn about important elements of creative writing. Students will get to practice creative writing strategies taught to them through creative writing exercises.
I have been a public elementary school teacher for over 10 years. I have taught all over the world with students from many different backgrounds, many entering my class with a disdain for writing, yet leaving at the end of the year asking for just one more essay or narrative! Through my teaching experience, I've learned what is important in a student's writing, and I've found ways to make these writing essentials and practices engaging for students. When a student feels confident, they will be more willing to express themselves through writing.
After class, students have the option of sharing one or more of their writing task pieces from the class for feedback and review. This would be a great opportunity to interact with your peers and continue to improve your writing craft. The teacher will also offer feedback on posted work.
-Notebook paper, possibly a sketch pad -Pencil or pen (or a digital way to capture ideas and write)
Students may submit original work from class to the teacher for feedback. This should be sent within 24 hours of finishing the class. The teacher will reply within 48 hours with feedback and suggestions. This opportunity is optional but may enhance your student's learning from the course and is greatly welcomed!
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
