Ahoy mateys! Our salty crew will learn how to write like a pirate in this 4-week class. Includes weekly 1-hour Zoom call, engaging materials hosted on Google Classroom, and personal feedback.
⚓ Lesson 1: What Be Yer Pirate Name?
Discover your pirate name and new vocabulary (for seafarers only)! Learn how to punctuate dialogue (if you dare!) and write an alliteration (or two!).
☠️ Lesson 2: Develop a Pirate Character
Develop a pirate character using graphic organizers. Compare “traditional” and not-so-traditional pirate characters!
🏝️ Lesson 3: Create a Swashbuckling Setting
Create exciting settings by sketching a treasure map. Put your geography skills to the test, and figure out where “X” marks the spot!
💰 Lesson 4: Finish the plot, Matey!
Avast me hearties! Keep writing! Heave ho! Put some muscle into it! Did you find the treasure?
I have 24 years of writing and editing experience, including four years as a writing instructor. I love helping kids learn new skills while having fun along the way!
