Creative Writing – How To Tell A Story

Creative Writing – How To Tell A Story

Class Description: This class is going to focus on the idea of”writing” and “storytelling”itself. What does it mean to be a writer, how do you write, how do you work with language, what does it mean to tell the truth, how to craft a story, etc. the class will focus on nonfiction and personal essays where students can use their own life experiences as a basis for their writing. Ideally, students have a level of maturity that can allow them to grow and develop as a writer on a daily basis. This will be a higher level workshop in terms of how they think about writing and what it means to capture a moment in a character’s life. It will be more perspective taking, deeper analysis on character psychology, and will gear students to be more prepared for college personal statements. We will work a lot more with details, line editing, and word choice with the hope that the students can finalize a select few essays.

At the end of the class, students will be leaving with 3-4 polished personal essays.

Class Goals:

● To recognize the significance of storytelling in everyday lives and future careers.

● To develop writing skills and personal introspection.

● To write about oneself, one’s own personal life experiences, interests, ideas, and stories.

● To understand character psychology and how to craft a complex character.

● To polish and finalize personal essays that can be submitted for publication.

unctioning apps right away.

As you build these apps, you’ll learn how to:

  • Perform calculations, man
    ipulate text strings, and generate random colors
  • Use conditions, loops, and methods to make your programs responsive and concise
  • Create functions to reuse code and save time
  • Build graphical user interface (GUI) elements, including buttons, menus, pop-ups, and sliders
  • Take advantage of Eclipse and Android Studio features to debug your code and find, fix, and prevent common mistakes

Curriculum Section 1: Python Fundamental Concepts Review. Learn files and exceptions as well as how to test your codes.

Section 2: Alien Invasion project. Use the Pygame package to develop a 2D game in which the aim is to shoot down a fleet of aliens as they drop down the screen in levels that increase in speed and difficulty. At the end of the project, students will have learned skills that will enable them to develop their own 2D game.

Section 3: Data Visualization project.  Introduce students to data visualization through a variety of visualization techniques. Work with data sets generated through code, data sets downloaded from online sources, and data set your programs down load automatically. After students complete this project, they will be able to write programs that sift through large data sets and make visual representations of that stored information.
