Curriculum:

Creative Writing seeks to allow students the time and instruction to explore their interests in writing. The course will provide students instruction in and exposure to a variety of genres, styles, and theories of writing craft. Students will be given the freedom to explore the areas and genres of writing that interest them the most, but they will also be challenged to explore areas and genres outside of their comfort zones. Ultimately the course will assist students in beginning to build a writing portfolio that will allow them to pursue further studies or potential employment in creative writing. The course will push students to “cultivate their creative thinking and communication skills to become engage thinkers and ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit.”

As students progress from Creative Writing 15 through Creative Writing 25 and 35, there becomes an increased focus on understanding and fine-tuning their knowledge of their craft, their inherent writing style, and the publishing industry at large as well as how an individual begins moving towards publishing their own work as well as writing professionally in other capacities. 

GENERAL LEARNER OUTCOMES:

General Learner Outcomes (provided by Rocky View Schools locally developed course material) identify the attitudes, knowledge, and skills that students are expected to demonstrate to successfully complete Creative Writing. The five outcomes are interdependent and are achieved through a variety of assignments, experiences, and tasks. The G.L.O.s for Creative Writing are:

  • Students will listen, speak, read, write, view, and represent to:
    • Create original texts.
      • Collaborate with peers and community.
      • Manage their publication process and understand the professional publication process.
