Class Experience

Students will learn the structure and writing style required to write
 - fiction
 - poetry
 - instructions
 - comic books
 - essays

They will focus on themes found in literature to build their own writing skills and style!

They will learn to edit and peer review and how to make corrections to their work.
Students will have one project to complete each month. They will be given time to work on it in class but will need to do some writing outside of class each week in order to complete the project.
Students will need paper and pencil or a computer to write on. Worksheets will be provided that can be printed.
Students will receive feedback from the teacher on each writing project. A letter grade will not be given unless requested in advance.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will have the option to read books or movies related to our monthly topics and will need to obtain these on their own and watch/read them outside of class.
