Class Experience

Students will engage the writing process using supports like graphic organizers to write about a subject that they are passionate about. They will be motivated to do purposeful writing by producing a graphic novel  and comic book page for a story that they have developed.
Bridget Smith is a credentialed K-12 teacher, a published writer, and the mom to reluctant writers.  She has extensive experience supporting kids with ADHD and other learning differences here on the Outschool platform.
Students have the option of completing and polishing the work they produce in class in order to "publish it" either in the Outschool Classroom or the Write What You Like Blog.
Graphic novel templates, and graphic organizers for story planning will be uploaded to the Outschool Classroom before class begins. Please download and print them out if possible. They are valuable supports for Reluctant Writers. A pen or pencil, colored pens or pencil, and blank paper would also be helpful.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will read about three pages from "Dogman" by Dave Pilkey,  "The Last Kids on Earth" or "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down" or to inspire our learners to develop their own graphic novel. We will compare "The Amazing Spiderman" and "Calvin and Hobbes" to learn more about comic books.

Students will have the opportunity to publish their work anonymously on the "Write What You Like" blog with parent permission.
