Workshop: Powerful Paragraphs

Using examples from classic middle-grades literature and nonfiction, we will examine what makes a paragraph successful or not. Students will critique famous passages and rewrite them in various ways, then practice writing their own.

Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Writers will gain experience and skill in literary analysis, grammar, sentence and paragraph structure, creative writing, reading comprehension, communication, and collaboration.
No homework. Students will leave with sample excerpts, all the exercises from class, extra games and exercises to work with later, and a list of recommended reading.
Notebook/paper and pens/pencils, tablet, or laptop for writing.
I will follow up after the workshop with specific feedback and recommendations for further exploration. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Information, downloadable documents, and links to relevant sources will be available on the course dashboard.
