Journaling: the writer's voice
Posts on Fridays (Grades 8-12)
Course Objective: To provide an introduction to the world of blogging and to develop a singular writing voice and style.
Course Description: Daily writing (journaling) is a useful, life-long habit for students in high school, college, and into adulthood. Journaling helps develop a unique style and voice that is powerful and confident. Students in this course will develop and hone their individual writer’s voice and style through 3 journal submissions per week on a variety of topics. Students will be encouraged to try a variety of voices (humor, irony, inspirational) as well as use journaling as a way to explore the world and their connection to it. The art of journaling will be merged with the field of professional online blogging toward the end of the course.
