This student centered class will focus on students' free writing after being given a prompt to free their creative thinking. Each week will be a different type of prompt. After a short discussion of the prompt, students will be given 5-10 minutes to write a response to that prompt. We will then discuss their writing, pulling out the "gems" that will stand out from their writing. Then, depending on how much time, students will write further on those gems-- perhaps a poem or a short story....
Students will improve their ability to write to a prompt, free up their creative thinking, and identify the "gems" that will show up in their free writing.
Students will be encouraged, but not required, to expand on the ideas they got from the day's writing.
Students will need paper and a writing utensil for each lesson.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment during class
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
