Class Experience

The student will practice different 13 cursive families and how to connect them. In addition, the student will review and learn the writing process which involves generating and organizing information, of which planning and editing are a part as appropriate to the students grade level.
As a dedicated educator with experience in teaching children (birth-eighth grade) with special needs, preschoolers, and my children. I know that writing is an important skill, particularly grammar, which are the rules of a language governing the sounds, words, sentences, and other elements, as well as their combination and interpretation. In addition, I have worked with students (adults and children) who are second language learners, where grammar is difficult to learn. In addition to being a certified elementary education teacher (K-8) and licensed special education, I am certified (TESOL and TEFL) to teach students whose English is their second language. I have a BA in Elementary Education, a BS in Special Education, M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, and an Ed.S in Education.    The word grammar also denotes the study of these abstract features or a book presenting these rules of writing, which includes writing sentences that involve complete throughs involving grammatically correct sentences can be hard. I have worked with students who have limited literacy and language for over 30 years in public schools. I worked with speech therapists to develop students' individual education plans in part, to help them learn to write, specifically to help them develop their language skills and give them a foundation for reading and writing. In addition, as a certified TEFL and TESOL teacher, I have received training in grammar, idioms, writing, and vocabulary development.  I generally prefer one on one or in small groups as much as possible.  This allows me to get to know the students and their needs.  Grammar skills are something that students need to learn in a sequential manner. Traditional grammar is a sort of mental exercise in a purely abstract subject, but functional grammar is linked with speech, reading, and writing.  Traditional grammar is taught formally, and functional grammar is taught incidentally.  There are two main approaches to teaching grammar. These are the deductive and the inductive approach. I have received training as an elementary and special education teacher to help students learn various grammar skills. While I use worksheets to provide examples of lessons, I have been trained to teach grammar by encouraging and promoting reading and writing. This course will be based on techniques and skills that I found useful in helping students learn to write and answer questions. In addition, I have worked as a freelance writer and copy editor for 10 years as well as taught English skills at the elementary, middle, and high school levels for over 30 years. During my years as a teacher and now, as a freelance writer and editor, I have also tutored students who need to improve their writing skills for pre-K and post-graduate level papers.
The student is not required to do any work outside of class. 
At times I will request that the student has flour, water, playdough, colored pencils, a gallon size ziplock bag, a quart size ziplock bag, plastic (from either a wrap or a bag), highlighter.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will establish a checklist that I will review with the students once a week in order to monitor their progress. 
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will use a password protected google docs order because it will be easier to maintain their development without constantly uploading or scanning material.
