After two years of creating, conspiring, and co-writing, my writing assistant (Zac Kieser) and I have finished our Twice-Told Tales–Classic Stories With Spin-Off Versions for Read Aloud or Read Alone Fun. Just in time for Christmas gift giving and second semester classroom use! So what exactly is a “Twice-Told Tale”? And what is a book containing twenty of them? Let’s start with the Classic Tale first…..
When I post a live video of one of my writing classes on Facebook, I always get those same questions: When will you offer classes for people who don’t live near you? Are you going to be having online classes soon? And I keep saying “soon”! Well, soon is now here. We are officially having our very first LIVE online writing class (remedial writing, of sorts). I will enumerate the details below.
I love teaching every type of writing to every age of student! There isn’t a writing lesson that I have written in fifty thousand pages and one hundred books that I don’t look forward to teaching! (There are some grammar ones—direct and indirect objects! And some spelling ones—creating plurals! But not writing!)
My books are so directed and step-by-step that they are truly incredibly fun to teach from.
When you first saw the title of this, maybe you were a little freaked out about the idea of teaching story writing. I know that I used to be before Joshua (my son) taught me how to teach it incrementally, step-by-step with mapping and lists that help students lay out their characters, plot, obstacles, solutions, and more. He is a master teacher and has helped me learn how to teach things that I formerly did not feel comfortable teaching.
We are happy to announce our class line up for the next school year at three of our four locations/days! (The fourth day/location is Joshua teaching at a co-op in Churubusco, Indiana.)
Please get your forms in by July 1st as we decide which classes to add or subtract based on enrollment at that time. If you are registering after July first, please call to see if there are still slots available (260.433.4465).
Alright, Fort Wayne area peeps! We are ready for you!
If you are not a FW area peep, don’t close your computer ‘coz we are going Live on the Internet!
Yep, we are still having all of our classes in our four locations (our three, plus Joshua’s Columbia City/Churubusco co-op gig). But in addition to those, we will be rolling out our new Live Internet classes for three sections in the fall. (Do you want to be our guinea pigs???? 🙂 )
