Class Experience

Students will learn the basics of essay writing, including how to develop a thesis and how to create a kernel essay. From there, learners will be supported to start building their understanding of how to add content to their outline. 
I started teaching essay writing as an instructor of the University of Waterloo, in Ontario. Since then, and for six years now, I've taught essay writing to grade 10-12 students. Writing is a special passion of mine: I've been a journalist for over 20 years, and have written some short published stories and poems. I have also worked as a performing poet and actor with troupes of like-minded artists. Currently I'm writing a book about compassionate communication.
There is no homework for this course.
Learners don't need any specific supplies, other than a computer with a camera, an ability to meet in a Zoom meeting.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

Students will receive feedback (ie formative assessment) at the end of class, in separate Zoom rooms.
1 hour per week in class, and no time outside of class.
There is no sensitive content.
