Description

Class Experience

Students will use their love for Pokemon to unleash their creativity and improve their writing skills. They will learn important techniques such as setting the scene, description, conflict, action, and cause and effect. 
I received my minor in creative writing from Indiana University Northwest. During my time there, I took many writing workshops and honed my skills. Several of my short stories have been published in independent zines. I also have experience with writing and revising a novel. Many of my close colleagues have literary agents and are on the road to publication. I have acted as a critique partner for them, helping them get their stories to a publishable level. I also am very knowledgeable about the writing industry and what it takes to improve one's creative writing. 
After week 2, students will work on a section of their short story. Sections should be roughly 100-300 words. Students can either write their story on paper or type it on the computer. They will need to send a picture of their paper or a link to their paper in the classroom tab before the next class starts. 

Week 2-Finding out about getting your first Pokemon
Week 3- Meeting your first Pokemon. 
Week 4- Your first Pokemon battle.
Week 5- Leaving on your Pokemon adventure.

Each week, I will look over what students wrote and offer feedback. On the last day of class, everyone will read their stories in class. 
-Students will need something to write their stories on. This can be paper or on the computer. If we finish class early, I will give them time to write, so they should have their writing materials with them in class.
-Students may use Pokemon guidebooks or the internet to look at Pokemon pictures for inspiration when writing their stories. 
I will look over the student's entire story and give them detailed notes on what they did well and what they can work on in the future.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
