Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
This class will satisfy the following Common Core ELA standards: W.3a-e, W.4, W.5, W.6, and W.10

- Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, 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 experiences and events or show the responses of characters to situations.
- Use concrete words and phrases and sensory details to convey experiences and events precisely.
- Provide a conclusion that follows from the narrated experiences or events.
- Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
- 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. 
Any writing work not completed during our lesson will be completed as homework. 
Notebook (optional)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Writers will be given verbal or written feedback on their work for each lesson before the next day. 
- Feedback will be given to all final projects. 
- Final grades available upon request. 
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Kahoot will be used in this class, learners don't need an account but may need help switching tabs. The best Kahoot experience is having the Kahoot app loaded on a second device.

I will share templates through Google docs, 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.
