Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
- Write narratives to develop imagined events using effective technique and clear event sequences.
- Orient the reader by establishing a situation and introducing characters
- Organize an event sequence that unfolds naturally.
- Use dialogue and description to develop events and show the responses of characters to situations.
- Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, and editing.
- Use technology to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others.
I have taught the writing process in my 3rd and 4th grade classes and adapted them for a filmmaking club at my former school. Prior to becoming a teacher, I had worked on a few independent films and attended film school.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Writers will be given verbal or written feedback on their work for each lesson. 
- Feedback will be given to final projects. 
- Final grades available upon request. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will share templates through Google docs and Jamboard, though your child can use a notebook or other word document application.
They will still need to upload their work each week to show their progress and to receive feedback.
