Class Objectives

 

 

  • Students will experience, practice and refine the traits of writing using inspiration and content related to the “stream” they are studying during trimester 1.
  • Students will use online experiences and tools as inspiration and documentation for each step of the writing process.
  • Students will initially work through the traits of writing with the teacher’s heavy involvement, until students who are leaders are able to step up and take on roles as peer editors.
  • Students will practice prewriting until they are comfortable with the concept and are able to pre-write copious ideas, thoughts, and random details about a specific topic or experience in a short amount of time. 
  • Students will improve organizational skills in their writing, making it apparent that they understand the various methods of organization including, but not limited to the following:  chronological, spatial, theoretical, conceptual, etc.
  • Students will learn various tools and how to use them to organize their thoughts, such as color-coding, outlining, grouping, etc.
  • Students will practice taking their writing from the prewriting stage to the drafting stage; learning to focus at this stage on overall organization and “big picture” writing—saving more detailed revision and enhancing for later in the process.
  • Students will learn the art of revising for detail, elaboration, vivid language and other literary tools that make writing come alive.
  • Students will fine tune and polish their writing, editing for grammatical, spelling, and other errors.
  • Students will experience the satisfaction of a well-developed narrative, which they are proud to share with others in online formats.
