Creative Writing – 4th to 5th Grade


Course Description In this course, students will analyze the storytelling elements of fairy tales and fables through reading and discussion questions that will guide their own writing. Throughout, they will engage in relevant writing exercises to apply what they have learned. The experiences will culminate in a final project based on the universal writing process, from outlines, drafts and revisions, to the finished products.
