Each lesson begins with three course opening activities: descriptive word bank (building a descriptive vocabulary); see it, describe it (describing images using vivid language); and learning from the professionals (studying description in young adult literature).
Lectures consist of concept overview (definitions, examples, and analysis) and practice (simple construction).
Each writing activities consist of a poem example (using concept) and writing assignment (with all creative requirements).
Each lesson concludes with a "5-Minute Write-Down" activity (word games).
This course concludes with a 10-piece autobiography portfolio (completed after each lesson for homework). Prompts, examples, guidelines, and grading rubric are included.
This is a great resource to kick-off a creative writing class or to incorporate creative writing into your classroom. This course promotes rigorous creativity.
