Creative Writing focus on imaginative writing style which could include short stories, poetry, and creative nonfiction. Writing skills will be developed through daily writing and analysis of quality writing. Students will practice reading and responding to literature in all different stages of the writing process. A final summative portfolio of the work will show writing growth over the semester.
Reading and Writing for the Stage
Reading and writing for the Stage will explore, read, and respond to plays written during major periods of dramatic history. Students will respond to these plays through writing, which may include journal entries, literary analysis, play reviews or their own original scripts. Students will explore the major historical events and dramatic theories surrounding each play. Students will also communicate their understanding of these plays through presentation of their ideas, which may include presenting sets designs, costume designs, monologues, or their own opinions of the author’s works.
