Class Experience

Students will improve their writing skills and learn stress-free techniques to completing a writing assignment. We will talk about who our encouragers, mentors, and heroes are—both fictional and in our communities. We will also discuss the key elements of a short story: character, setting, conflict, plot and theme. Each student will have the opportunity to write a fictional short story based on the person of their choice. Students will also have the chance to read their stories to other students. 
Students will need paper and pencil for writing.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This book is not required for the class, but some of the material and the teaching methods used for the class come from my book Write Away: Writing Guides from an Author and Teacher.
