Class Experience

I have a degree in English Education and a master's degree in Educational Leadership.  I have also been teaching writing for over 18 years. 
Students will be asked to complete their essay and turn it in through email before we begin the next essay. 
Students will be assessed through their writing of two essays. Each piece should follow the specific format outlined in the course. Students will be given a rubric outlining what is expected for each paper. This rubric will include categories such as organization, mechanics and usage, sentence fluency, and word choice. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
