Course Description:
In this course, students will explore a range of creative writing genres, including fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, drama, and multimedia writing. Students will study examples of writing through classic and contemporary selections and will apply that knowledge and understanding to their writing. In addition, students will develop an intimate understanding of the writing process and its application to various projects. As students move through the course, they will understand and evaluate the writings of others, and be able to apply the evaluation criteria to their own writing. By the end of the course, students will have created a well-developed portfolio of finished written works. Learning activities include reading; listening; discussing; writing; multiple choice games; self-check activities; and reflective journals. The unit structure includes the broader idea of the unit as defined by the main heading. Units will include a combination of activities and will culminate in a submittal of the finished unit project. Unit projects will be developed in phases throughout each section of the unit. Unit lessons and performance tasks have been scaffolded carefully to help students achieve deeper levels of understanding.
