Home School ONLINE – The Writers’ Workshop
ONLINE – Grades 7 to 9 – Ignite your imagination while practicing your skills as a writer. Students will have the opportunity to engage in interesting and creative writing activities and projects while focusing on specific skill development. Through ‘one pagers’ and poetry, students will hone their descriptive writing skills and use of figurative language. Have you ever wanted to write your own adventure or fantasy story? What better way to practice story structure and character development than to create a ‘hero’ story! We will also look to the great William Shakespeare for inspiration. After reading a shortened version of one or more of his plays, students will practice persuasive writing as they become a defense lawyer or prosecutor for one of the characters! Students will have the opportunity to share their writing and participate in one-to-one and group editing sessions, working towards self-editing and revising their work.
