Class Experience

As the class goes on students will get practice in:
•	Organizing their thoughts with pre-writing exercises
•	Reading their work out loud
•	Listening to their peers in an engaged and respectful way
•	Giving articulate, respectful, and helpful feedback to their peers
•	Developing focus and concentration on a task
•	Letting their creative ideas flourish
•	Exciting collaborative engagement with other students 
•	Learning elements of short story structure 
This workshop is for teens who find fun in a creative challenge. There's so much to write about--new characters, new creatures, new adventures--your teen won't want to stop even after writing time is over.  The collaborative world building element of creating their own haunted world creates a bond between students that they won't forget.
Students should have access to writing paper and pen for each workshop class. We want to put our inner critic away--it's too easy to erase words on the computer. Tip: have a folder on hand so you can put stories from the workshop together at the end of each day.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students are keenly aware of their peer's reactions to their work. They know when everyone is listening breathlessly.  Holding other students in thrall encourages participants to write at a more challenging level. As they participate in the workshop they naturally want to read something other students will enjoy, so they begin pushing themselves to write better work using the tools presented by the instructor in exercises.  By the end of the workshop, their writing has reached a more sophisticated and challenging level.
4 hours 10 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We stay on the Addam's Family side of things -- creepy, spooky, and kookie, not much gore and violence.
