Goofy, Gross & Gripping Animal of the Week - Creative Writers' Club

In this ongoing course, students will meet once a week to learn scientific facts about a unique, unusual animal. Then, we'll write a descriptive paragraph about it. Each week, a new animal will be introduced.

Class Experience

Students will learn to develop stronger paragraphs based on content, fluency, and expression. Brainstorming ideas for descriptive expression will be encouraged.
I'm an international teacher, world traveler and hard-core researcher. I have numerous articles published online, in national and international publications, and I’ve taught writing workshops all over the world. 
Students may continue to develop their paragraphs at home after class. They may submit their completed paragraph to the teacher for feedback after class, if they wish.
 1 file available upon enrollment
(Optional) 1-2 copies of the graphic organizer (free PDF worksheet available on the "Welcome" page when student enrolls) Lined paper Pencils and erasers
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
3rd party apps are not required. However, there will be a PDF worksheet (generated by Google Drive) available to print upon enrollment. You will not need an extra login to access it. Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools. For some classes, there may be a short Youtube video shown to highlight the animal of the week.
