We'll experiment with journals, stories, character descriptions, poems, animal characters, superheroes, stories for younger kids, fantasy, and putting ourselves in other people’s shoes. The focus will be on developing our own thoughts and ideas - grammar and structure will be important, but secondary. Most projects will be short; a few will develop over several classes. There is a half hour break between each Wednesday class. DD students are welcome to use the teen/teacher lounge and waiting area to eat, socialize, do home work etc. between classes. Students in the lower grade classes need to be registered in our Down Time Program or picked up immediately after their class is completed.
