Courses taught by Gina

Creating Dynamic Characters is a three-week mini-unit focusing on how to create memorable characters in fiction. Through a series of questions, reflections, and digging deeper, writers will be encouraged to get to know the heart of their characters and how to connect them with the hearts of their readers.

Paint with Your Words teaches students how to convert passive writing into active writing. In this mini-unit, students will learn what passive writing is, how active writing is different, how to incorporate the five senses into their writing, how to choose strong words, and how to weave figurative language into what they write.
