I have a Master's degree in Creative Writing which required my own 30 page extended critical essay. During the past two years, I have tutored many high school and college students about the importance of correct sources, quotes, references and citations. Unfortunately, when students do finally choose quotes or data for their essays, they often do it incorrectly because they are confused and overwhelmed by all of their options. My goal is to inform and empower students as much as possible using the information I have gathered and learned over my own teaching career. 
Homework Offered
Each Sunday, students will have access to the new video over the pros and cons of a certain type of source. There are daily activities the students will do to show their understanding of the topic. At the end of the week, there is a Kahoot! quiz for further practice and review of the week's topics.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
The more questions, comments, and posts that students share in the classroom, the more I can understand their knowledge and comprehension of the topics we are discussing.
