FOR CARIELLO FICTION SECTION 2039:
THIS SECTION OF W203 HAS BEEN DESIGNATED FOR EDUCATION MAJORS.

TOPIC: FICTION WRITING FOR FUTURE TEACHERS

This section has been specially designated for students from the School of Education. W203 Creative Writing, Fiction Writing for Future Teachers will help you do three things: further develop your skills in writing short fiction; read published fiction critically in order to see the strategies used by successful writers; and learn how to translate both these skills to classroom practice. Class time will be divided between writing workshops, student-generated discussions of readings, and explorations of Creative Writing pedagogy. Reading, writing and reflection will be seen as complementary activities: workshops will echo critical discussions of stories so that they both focus on the elements that need to be controlled in order to write good fiction (such as characterization, dialogue setting, scene and summary, point of view, etc.). Likewise, it will be important to abstract from these reading and writing lessons toward the theoretical problems of classroom practice.

Course work will include one ten-page story (and drafts); numerous in-class writings; an essay on your history as a writer; critical responses to stories and reader responses to workshops; mid-term and final self evaluations; presentations on stories, with reading/writing exercises.
