Description

Class Experience

Improve Essay writing skills including clarity of writing and the ability to sell edit written work.
This organization has approved the following educators to teach our studio created curriculum:
Ms. Rae has over 8 years of experience teaching creative writing to Middle School students. She has been teaching ESL learners online for 6 years. 
Each week students are asked to provide a short video and complete a with a written homework assignment. Assignments are submitted via Google Drive. 

Students who do not do the homework on time or skip steps, tend to spend a lot of time trying to catch up. To get the most out of this class we asks that students do the homework (1-2 hours a week), participate in class, and ask questions when in doubt. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Each assignment will receive a written review from the instructor.
Students may be asked to revise their written work before the next in person meeting. Teacher comments are placed in the Google Doc's comment section.
In some cases the teacher may remit a short video to the student to demonstrate what changes are recommended.
The final essay will be reviewed during the final class. Students will have 3 days after the final class to make revisions to their final essay. Once the deadline has passed the instructor will provide written feedback on the content of the final essay.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will share material with the instructor via Google Docs and Google Drive. Google Docs and Google Drive does not require your child's personal information to create an account. The teacher will assign links. If your child is unable to access Google Docs and Google Drive please let the instructor know before the first class so that we can make alternate arrangements for your child.

We are able to determine within the first two sessions if a student will benefit from additional support. Because this class is designed to take some of the fear out of essay writing, parents may receive an email from the instructor recommending additional support. Additional support may mean attending another class section for more help, joining our essay help club, or taking a private lesson

All homework assignments are broken up into 1-2 hour projects. Students receive about 30 minutes of in class time to work on their essay. Students who do not complete the homework generally end up with more work to do during the week.

The instructor will make 3 attempts and reaching families when students don't do the homework or don't participate in class. While this class does not offer a grade, students who do not do the homework will be advised to repeat the course. Families will not be given a refund for repeating the course due to lack of participation.
Students will be invited to run an online search for facts and statistics.
