Class Experience

1: The students will be able to understand how plot makes a good story and identify elements of plot in their favorite movies or stories.
2: The students will be able to determine when in a creative writing story they should create new paragraphs
3: The students will be able to take an original story and change the plot to create a new one
4: The students will be able to write a fractured fairy tale that is 2-7 pages long
5: The students will be able to closely edit both their own and peers writing
This is my favorite creative writing unit to teach at the start of every academic year! It is great for students who love to write fiction, but also naturally incorporates great scaffolding for struggling writers because they are building their story off of another one. Every year the students love this assignment the most for creative writing!
The only homework for this class will be the actual writing of the rough draft for the story. They will be given at least 5 days between classes to write the story, and most students only need two different 40 minute sessions to write due to the in depth planning we will do in class. 
We will use a variety of resources that I will provide for students. I will share documents with students on the Classroom Tab, and we will watch videos and lecture notes on slides that I will share there as well. Students should have some way to write their story with either Google Doc's or Microsoft Word. Please reach out to me if you don't have either of these and we can figure out a plan!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal Assessments: They will have a variety of discussions, notes, and planning documents.
Formal Assessments: The Editing 'Quiz' and the Final Draft of the Fractured Fairy Tale
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
