How Outschool Works

This class will involve creating a city that exists on another planet or in an alternative universe. You will get to people your section of this remarkable city with interesting characters, unusual objects, and strange events. The process: Step 1: Each week students will receive a writing exercise that relates to a flavor of science fiction and fantasy. Step 2: When the 20 minute writing time is over, students will be given the option to read their work out loud to each other. Step 3:...
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 novel plot structure
This workshop is for kids who write like teens and find fun in a creative challenge. There's so much to write about--new characters, new creatures, new adventures--your tweener won't want to stop even after writing time is over. The collaborative world building element of creating their own city 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. As they participate in the workshop they naturally want to read something other students will enjoy, so they naturally 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.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
