Kitan CoxHost: As an experienced secondary English teacher, I have taught GCSE and A-Level English (Language and Literature), Media Studies, Extended Project Qualification, Critical Thinking and Drama in a wide range of educational settings in London and Surrey (outstanding secondary schools, academies and a further education college). I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

If you wrote a story about a hero would the purpose be to excite or unsettle? In this class, students will learn how to structure narrative writing, how to decide on the end goal, and different techniques to make your writing stand out. Students will focus on the topic A Hero Returns to practice their newly learned skills! This class is aimed at students in Years 7 and 8 but is a great class for any student interested in writing!
