Class Experience

Students will gain understanding of the elements of a mystery story and begin to use them effectively. Students will be able to plan out their story and have a deeper understanding of conflict, consequence, enigma and resolution within a plot. 
Writing is my passion and as well as majoring in English at university, I've almost 20 years experience in teaching English in primary schools (4-11-year-olds) and also as a Home Educator. Over those years I have regularly worked with groups of children specifically on English writing skills. 
Homework is not set for this class but students may wish to begin or continue their stories after class and may share via the class page if they like.
A notebook and something to write with.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment within class. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Not applicable to this class.
All content will be created by me especially for the class.
