Description

Class Experience

Students will learn all elements of a novel, which will allow them to create their own piece of fiction. In the process, they will also:

-Expanded their vocabulary;
-Gain an understanding of the mechanics of Reading and Writing;
-Develop cognitive growth;
-Develop the power to influence others through persuasion;
-Self-confidence;
-Artistic Expression; and
-Goal Setting and Discipline. 

Lessons will provide the student with an understanding of the major elements of a novel, including:

-Plot,
-Setting,
-Character Development,
-Point of View,
-Theme(s)
-Symbolism,
-Conflict,
-Dialogue, 
...and more!
Yes, there is homework. There will be some worksheets and, and, of course, a considerable amount of writing once we start our novels. Students will set your own daily and weekly goals for their writing, with the goal of completing their first draft in 30 days (yes, you really can produce your first draft in 30 days--editing comes later!). The initial work will be a rough draft, but that is why we edit!
National Novel Writing Month's Young Novelist Workbook - High School, available on Amazon for $10. Make sure you get the High School version. NOTE: It may take up to a week to receive the workbook. Please order right away!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
We will be keeping track of progress on each students novel with feedback being provided along the way. No letter grade is given, but Home Schoolers should contact me if special considerations are needed.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
None whatsoever!
There is an outside website that will be used in class. I will send the details to students when needed.
