Your land, your society. Do you want to write about people who are high tech or low tech? Aggressive or peaceful? Rich or poor? Have your character discover a powerful item--one that could lead to danger or discovery...

Description

Class Experience

Students will be introduced to writing craft techniques such as:
world building
character descriptions
action arcs
collaborative team writing
Skills used:
focussing on a task for 20 minutes
reading out loud
listening
giving constructive feedback and praise 

This workshop is great for kids who can write easily, but need a creative challenge to fuel their writing. New characters, new creatures, new adventures--your child won't want to stop even after writing time is over.  The collaborative world building element creates a bond between students they won't soon forget.
None.
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.  They know when everyone is excited about their writing. Positive reinforcement for strong writing from the group encourages students to write at a more challenging level.
4 hours 10 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
