THIS IS A WRITING HEAVY CLASS.

This class will continue working on writing skills. In term 2 we focused on the Hero's Journey structure, we crafted some comics following the same structure. We explored creative writing skills via showing not telling and worked on writing a short story. In term 3 we will continue with this approach and will begin to practise formal writing structure. We will read a selection of short stories and use our analysis skills to draw connections between the stories. There will be a fair amount of sustained silent writing so if you are looking for a chance to improve your writing, you’re in the ‘write’ spot! This means that you will need to be prepared with a pen/pencil, paper, or your own technology (not a mobile phone!). Booking laptops is possible but not always guaranteed.
