Students will gain a better understanding of the five elements of essay writing. Students will learn to apply this knowledge by writing a book review as an essay.
Students are encouraged to apply their essay writing knowledge by writing a review of their favorite book. An essay of this type is typically 1000 words or less, but can be more if desired. Students are asked to email me their book reviews before the second class so I can preview them. The student will bring the book review to the second class to share it with the others. This is optional, but will greatly increase the effectiveness of the class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
As time permits there will be an informal assessment in the second class.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
