Creative Writing is an open-minded class for students that enjoy writing or have a great imagination. This class is taught by Adrienne Forte, an elective teacher that also teaches Yearbook, Newspaper, and Reading. This year, the class is focusing on a type of writing style called Show, Don’t Tell.

Show, Don’t Tell teaches the students how to use similes, idioms, metaphors, and other figures of speech to heighten the reader’s senses at certain moments in a story. Throughout the class, the students will work on different projects. While you are working on these projects, you almost always have the choice of whether you want to work with a partner or not, an option that appeals to a lot of students. These projects include, but are not limited to, a story using Doctor Seuss, a picture book, a poem on social justice, a texting story, and a craigslist ad.

The biggest project in Creative Writing is the Dystopia Project, a project where students have to make their own dystopian society. A dystopian society is a world where there is not equal treatment; usually, a group of people is higher than the rest and rules all the other people (Such as the Hunger Games or Divergent Series). Students will have to create their own food menu, a government system, a military, and much more.

“I like how we got to write the projects however we wanted; there weren’t many guidelines and it was mainly left to our imaginations on how we did the projects,” said seventh grade student Gio Q.

In this class, before students start working on the current project, the students work on their warm-up blog, a place where they can write whatever they want, whether they want to write a story or rant about their day.

In conclusion, Mrs. Forte’s Creative Writing class is a place where students can come to learn how to writing better, make new friends, raise their vocabulary, and just have a good time in this class.
