I have taken several college level courses in English concepts and writing, including Creative Writing and Screenwriting. I have also won several grade level and above awards for my creative writing, as well as experience as an avid writer and reader. I have a passion for writing and would like to help your students find their passion, as well! Concurrently, I have five years of experience as a journalist which have honed basic writing skills used in multiple disciplines.
Students will view graphs on plot and the Hero's Journey. These will be provided by the teacher and shared using screen sharing.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be assessed on their participation and use of concepts.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
