This course will give students an introduction to essays or an opportunity to get a refresher on them. We will discuss what an essay is, distinguish the four main types, and identify strategies to construct one. We will also talk about the process of brainstorming, the importance of an outline, and various devices to ensure our essay makes an impact. This class is packed with...
Students will gain an understanding of an essay, its role in improving our knowledge, and techniques to write one.
I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults within the educational and mental health systems. While in graduate school, I was a part time college instructor which ignited my passion for teaching. I then became a mental health therapist, working in residential facilities as well as the community. For the past three years, I have taught English to students abroad. Along with being a teacher, I am also a writer. I have had two short stories published, and I continue to regularly submit material. For three years, I had a blog that included my short stories, reviews, and opinions on various issues. Other examples of my writing experience consist of curriculums for an independent living program, program descriptions, numerous website articles, as well as online advertisements. I enjoy sharing my passion for writing with students and hearing about what inspires them. I strive to provide a supportive atmosphere for my students, allowing them to harness and express their creativity in ways unique to them.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
