Hi! Thank you for signing up for my new writing class. I hope we can become a community of writers and have fun. I am always open to ideas on types of writing, but my overall goal is to prepare you for the next step in school, at a college or a job. Almost every career and life, in general, requires writing. The better you can write and communicate your ideas, the more power you have.
I also think it is important that you write for your own enjoyment too. The general format of this class is an introduction of a topic with a short lecture on Tuesdays and then I will ask you to submit your writing by Friday. Grades will not be given, but I will give feedback to help you become a better writer.
Students in this class are: Ellie, Cozette, Chloe, Anna, Lola, Mya, Finn and Will
I would like to discuss several of the major themes of the book using the topics below. What do you consider the most important theme? and why? Do you think these themes would have resonated with the readers when the book was first published? Is the topic still relevant today? If so, why? If not, why not?
Alienation, Friendship, Identity and The American Dream
