My welcome post includes a 1-page outline worksheet for enrolled learners who would like to use it.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
While we will not have time in class for students to write an essay on their own, learners who would like to follow along and outline an essay as we go will leave class with a full outline, and they will know how to turn their outlines into finished 5-paragraph essays!

If your learner already knows how to write a 5-paragraph expository essay and you're looking for a timed essay writing practice session with personalized essay feedback for your learner, please see this class:
