Description

Class Experience

This 3-part semester course has been designed to meet the Common Core Standards, English Language Arts (ELA) Standards for Writing specific to narratives for grades 8-12, including those regarding Production and Distribution of Writing, Research to Build and Present Knowledge, and Range of Writing.
Students will read the last two chapters of The Hero's Guidebook: Creating Your Own Hero's Journey by Zachary Hamby for this part of the course. The entire book is only 115 pages. Additionally, I may post resources for the learners from time to time as I find them, as optional supplementary reading material.

As this class is also a writers' workshop, learners are also expected to bring in pieces of narrative writing from one of their own story-based creative writing projects (or multiple projects!) throughout this course, to be workshopped by the group in the second class session of each week. I will always provide several exercises for learners who don't have a creative writing project in progress, or would just like to write something brand-new. ☺
Students are expected to read The Hero's Guidebook: Creating Your Own Hero's Journey by Zachary Hamby outside of class. This book is available on Amazon in paperback for $10, or $3 on Kindle. I will also be referencing both Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces and Christopher Vogler's The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers, but students are not expected to read these books during this course—although I do recommend them if your learner is interested in further study!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
