Writing Fiction In High School by Sharon Watson.
Do you have a student who loves writing stories? This course by Sharon Watson would be an excellent choice to build and hone that student's writing skills. I can honestly say this is the most uncomplicated thorough course on fiction writing I have yet seen.
I'm so impressed with this course! It is both teacher- and student-friendly. If you aren't familiar with Sharon Watson, I'll tell you that she herself is an excellent writer. Obviously this makes her courses interesting and not as "text-bookish" as many high school level courses. She has a wonderful way of drawing her students in, using examples from classic and current literature and movies.
This course is also written from a biblical perspective. Sharon is all about motivating and encouraging her students. Her assignments and examples will appeal to her audience.
Sharon uses popular literature/movies as examples. It is helpful if you are able to incorporate these into your studies. Your kids will enjoy the opportunity to read and watch these examples of great fiction. And, that's just one more reason why this course is so teen-friendly.
The course includes several different options to tailor it to your student. You can stick with the general course. There is an additional manuscript track for students who have written or are writing a manuscript. And finally, there are lots of suggestions to using this course in a co-op setting. It would make a GREAT co-op course!
Writing Fiction In High School provides enough material and assignments for one year of creative writing, and includes a nice amount of grammar as well.
If you would like to borrow, invest in, or rent the additional recommended literature/movies for this course, here is the list (for your planning purposes):
The set includes a teacher's guide as well. Although the course could probably stand alone, I believe you will find the teacher's guide to be an invaluable help. Besides the answer key, it also contains a lesson plan, discussion questions (especially for the various literature excerpts and movies), and teacher helps.
Both the textbook and teacher's guide are non-consumable.
