Through a video chat, students will learn how to write a descriptive essay. They will learn the basic techniques of writing a descriptive essay, along with basic tips on how to be effective in their writing. There will be a PowerPoint from which students will get basic notes about descriptive writing which should last for 20 minutes. Students will get the next 30 minutes to write the first paragraph of their descriptive essay. The last 10 minutes of the class students will be allowed to share...
Students will improve their writing ability while reading to each other a paragraph of their writing. This class will also provide a little public speaking opportunity for the students.
I am offering this class because I believe it is essential to have good writing skills and when students practice from early, so when it is time to write college essays it will feel like a walk in the park.
Students will be asked to write one extra paragraph after the class is over and either post it in the discussion forum or email directly to the teacher.
A writing book and pen is all that will be necessary.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Progress will be assessed based on the essay they wrote during the session.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
