2021 MS107-1 Spring Friday Afternoon Class

Friday from 5:00 to 6:30PM, (1/28/2022- 4/29/202) (No class on 2/25 and 4/22)

Class Outline and Expectations 
This course will focus on introducing students to novels from a variety of genres. Specifically, we will cover fantasy, modern fairytale, biography, comedy/farce, and fiction. This diverse reading list will accompany lessons on a variety of writing styles, including creative writing, journalism, personal narrative, and literary academic. Each week I will provide materials (generally in a PPT) posted to the Slides and Resources folder to guide students in completing their homework.  Students will be writing 1 full piece (short story or essay) every two weeks, but will have other supporting assignments (plans) along the way. Writing assignments are due 48 hours before class. While individual grades won’t be lowered as a result of late submissions, their final grade may be lowered if late work becomes a pattern. Each student will receive a letter grade (A/B/C/D) on each assignment as well as a final grade. Individual assignments and final grades will be determined according to the guidelines below.
