Each week, I will introduce students to the following story elements. Students will discuss the week's current theme and how it relates to John Green's books specifically. Students should have a familiarity with John Green's writing, but they won't need to read any specific books prior to class.

I have a Master's degree in Writing for Children and Young Adults. John Green is one of my absolute favorite writers! (In grad school, I wrote and directed a short film titled I Heart John Green.) I absolutely love how his books sound like they are narrated by real teenagers. Oftentimes I forget I am reading a book written by a middle aged man. As an author, that is the ultimate goal of all of my works. So reading John Green actually inspires me to be a better writer! I hope to use students' enthusiasm for John Green to pass on this knowledge that I learn every time I pick up one of his books.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Green's books are controversial because they contain references to teenage sex, some language, and death. They are not appropriate for all readers. Parents should determine whether or not their student is ready for Green's books.
