Course Length: Half Year
Prerequisite: English 9
Through process writing, journal use, and free-writing, students explore their creative voices in poetry, play-writing, and the short story. Using personal experience and observation, students in this class develop skills in manipulating and using language, revision, and peer and self-evaluation. By working with models of literary work, students read and then interpret assignments in their individual fashion. Students must submit one “perfected” piece to our literary magazine. The course is designed to help the fledgling writer, as well as the more experienced writer, in grades 10 through 12.
