Class Experience

Students will explore different kinds of writing, try their hand at them, and learn to edit one to a polished final product. 
Homework for each week is listed in the class description. Students will build up their writing skills each week with assignments connected to the lesson and be able to submit them for feedback from the teacher (and peers) to help them improve. 
PDFs will be provided for outlines and to illustrate form, formatting, or structure.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be assessed on their final project (the finished draft) with a letter grade. Parents can opt out of the letter grade if they prefer their own form of assessment. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
