Class Experience

Students will learn grammar and writing strategies to become more proficient writers.

Standards:
Writing Topics:
-Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply reasons that support the opinion, use linking words (e.g., because, and, also) to connect opinion and reasons, and provide a concluding statement or section.
-Write informative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section.
-Write narratives in which they recount a well-elaborated event or short sequence of events, include details to describe actions, thoughts, and feelings, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide a sense of closure.

Research:
-Understand the purposes of various reference materials (e.g., dictionary, thesaurus, atlas).
-Generate research questions and record his/her own knowledge of a topic in various ways such as by brainstorming, identifying key words, drawing pictures, making lists, and showing connections among ideas.
-Write questions for investigating and take simple notes from relevant sources, such as classroom guests, books, and media sources.
-Select appropriate facts and compile notes into outlines, reports, summaries, or other written efforts using available technology.
-Record the authors and titles of works.
Some practice work is required (10-15 min max) with other optional work.
There will be printouts each class that students should bring. Students should have a composition notebook, a pencil, scissors, glue, and coloring supplies.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
