Welcome to my FLEX class that will help you gain the necessary skills to be successful in all your college classes that require writing! This class has a video lesson each week that will guide you through one aspect of writing, and you will have the opportunity to practice and receive feedback on your work. No live meetings.

Learners will dive deep into the components of a well-developed, well-supported essay. In this advanced class, we will be going beyond the basics of paragraphing, topic sentences, and evidence. We will focus on how to use well chosen evidence to add to the writer's credibility and persuasiveness. Learners will gain foundation skills that will help them in college.
I have 25 years of teaching experience--18 of which were teaching college English. The other years were spent with various (K-12) age groups.
Learners will begin working toward their final project from the first class session. In addition, one simple exercise will be given each week in order to solidify the lesson.
Detailed feedback will be given on the final essay. I will also chime in on the discussions and offer suggestions on homework throughout the course.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I use Kahoot as a fun way to review concepts taught in this class. Kahoot is a third party tool. Learners will need to go to a website and enter a game PIN in order to play. They will not need to create an account. Play does not need to take place synchronously; learners can complete the game at their leisure.
