This class is geared toward young writers who struggle to add detail to their writing. In this class, students will write a short description of a picture the teacher shares. Students will pick a word in their writing to "unpack" - that is, they will brainstorm more specific vocabulary to replace a common word in their description. Students will share their writing with each other and the teacher, get and give positive feedback, and learn to improve their writing while having fun! I like...
* How to identify words that carry quite a bit of meaning, but are very general. (e.g. nice, pretty, cute, funny) * How to brainstorm -"unpack" - the meanings inside these words. * How to add the new words to writing to make it even better. * How to get and give positive/constructive feed back to each other.
Paper or a composition book or journal. Pencil or pen
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will compare their first draft with their final draft, and assess themselves as well as making goals for future writing.
