Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will master grammar rules, and apply those rules to their writing, which will result in them writing clearly. 
Students will be prepared for college and university writing.
I have taught students grammar,punctuation and  writing skills to English Language Learners (ELL) , English as a Second Language (ESL)  and special needs learners, and I have also authored two curriculum books on teaching English writing skills to struggling students.Further,  I hold a TESOL, (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) teaching certificate with an emphasis on teaching children. I have taught ELL learners academic writing for more than  ten years in  such  settings as cultural  enrichment centers, homeschool cooperatives, and schools. This curriculum is based on  years of experience working with special needs and English language learners students. This class represents the primary skills (topics) students need to acquire to become proficient academic writers.

Additionally, my experience is as following: Cheryl R. Carter is a busy homeschooling mother (of five), author, speaker and a college professor with a passion to help others. Besides teaching, she has written broadly on spiritual growth, education, and special needs She is the author of several books including Organize Your Life, Essential Writing Skills for the College Bound Student, Inspire the Writer in Your Child and Organize Your AD/HD Child.  In addition to writing fiction and poetry in her spare time, she blogs regularly on issues of clarity in written communication, college admissions and the family.  She has a BA in English, a MFA in Writing and has done graduate study in Special Education and College Admission. Active in her local homeschool group, she has taught college-prep coop classes for several years. She has also written numerous literary guides and won academic awards for her writing. Her books have been translated into Japanese, Hebrew, German, Czech and Polish. Carter's curriculum and writing classes focus on equipping students with the vital skills for lifetime communication success. Her curriculum and classes are marked by a sense of depth, yet simplicity that nurture a love of writing in students. 
Each week students will complete a journal prompt and grammar exercise.
Each grammar homework is graded numerically. Each writing prompt is graded on clarity of thought either Pass or Fail.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
