Class Experience

Learners will be assigned stories to read, and will write their own story between classes.
Notebook/paper and pencil/pen. Handouts will be given, but printing them is optional.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
3 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Parent notes:
While NoSleep in a horror subreddit, and as such contains horror themes, it is not a place for graphic horror, splatter horror, torture horror, or any such subjects. Their guidelines here  https://old.reddit.com/r/NoSleepOOC/comments/hjhuyq/new_and_improved_posting_guidelines/ have an extensive list of what is not allowed, including details. Therefore, while horror, the stories are less extreme than what Stephen King, Clive Barker or Dean Koontz might write. The subreddit is here, https://www.reddit.com/r/nosleep/, and I am available for any questions ahead of time.
