This class is taught in English.
Students will boost their confidence mindset as a writer, brainstorming unique places where stories can be inspired, use literature to explore author's craft, create detailed lists to elaborate their writing, and have a safe space to share their words.

If you don't have a bookshelf full at home, I recommend going to the library and picking out an armful of books that intrigue you. (5-10 books or more?) The reading level is not important as long as you are able to read them. For example, Charlotte's Web is a 680 Lexile. This may be below your reading level, but is a great book to have in your pile. Graphic novels and nonfiction will not be used.
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
