How Outschool Works

Do you love stories and using your imagination? There is inspiration for stories all around us, sometimes hiding in the most unexpected places like a toy, a photograph, or a mysterious object. In this ongoing class, every week, I bring a new item to class for us to use as story inspiration. This might be a toy that can become a story character, a photograph for a story setting, or a mysterious object. We then brainstorm story ideas together. The rest of the class is spent getting started...
This class is taught in English.
The overarching goal of this class is to spark children's excitement for using their current literacy skills in creative and meaningful ways both in class and afterwards. I believe that learning to write is a process that develops gradually with support, time, and authentic opportunities to use their developing skills. The stories each learner writes in this class will depend on their stage of literacy development (they may be drawing, writing words, sentences and/or paragraphs). The class is designed to support the child in their current stage of development and to inspire them to use their current skills in new ways.
I have a Master's degree in early childhood and inclusive education with an emphasis on literacy. My love for creative writing started when I was a child and continues today. I have been an educator for 20 years and am passionate about teaching literacy skills that support a lifelong love of reading and writing. Storytelling and creative writing are some of my favorite ways to support literacy development. I see all children as capable individuals who are motivated to learn when their interests are honored and they are encouraged to make their own discoveries.
