Mr. Dutki’s creative writing class is doing a large variety of various activities to improve on the students writing and comprehension.  His class consists of middle school and high school students that go to Seisen as well as other schools.  During the first week, the students focused on poetry, as poetry is used a lot during middle school and high school in various assignments.  The main assignment was for the students to write a poem about themselves and imaginary friends.  They had to introduce themselves by writing poems that talked about themselves in whichever way they wanted. During the second week, the students are going to be focusing on metaphors and similes.  They have to describe something, such as a journey or a story, using all of their senses to help the reader visualize  he story as much as possible.  They must give examples and use imaginative language to the best of their ability.  They are also focusing on adjective and synonyms, as those are best used to describe someones senses.  All of these assignments help the students practice their skills as well as learn new ones that can be applied in future school years.  The students are enjoying this course as the teacher tries t make it as enjoyable as possible, some students have even won awards in creative writing.  Every week the students focus on something new that helps them improve on their english skills.
