Creative Writing (9th-12th)
Teacher: Catherine Menefee
Description: This class for high schoolers will introduce students to two different genres of creative writing: fiction and poetry. Students will read examples of excellence in each genre and will produce their own creative work, with time throughout the semester to share writing with others. Homework will include reading and writing. This class will not involve academic writing assignments (like essays), but the skills practiced in this class will make academic writing easier and more polished.
Class Length: 16 weeks
Homework: 0-30 minutes
Supplies: Notebook, writing utensils, a laptop if desired
