Description

Class Experience

Students will learn pre-writing skills such as character development, story organization, setting, theme, and plot development. They will learn how to hook the reader, focus and elaborate on elements that advance the story, and conclude in a way that satisfies the reader. They will also learn some revision techniques and how to peer edit. 
I have a Master's of Education degree and I am a certified teacher with over ten years experience in education. I am certified in K-6 elementary education, 7-12 social studies education, 7-12 language arts education, and K-12 Reading education. 
Students will complete modules and work on their story outside of class as much as they need/ want. 
I will provide all handouts. Learners will need a die or set of dice for the first module.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will provide feedback on each module. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students will use Gimkit to practice skills. Parental consent is required to use this resource.
