Every student has the ability to improve and strengthen their writing. From students that need a little extra help to students that possess excellent writing skills, there is always room to create and achieve new learning goals. In this semester-long course, students will learn and/or review the conventions and standards of English writing to compose a variety of written essays to be compiled into a writing portfolio. This is a FLEX version for students that cannot attend the live sessions....
The goal of this course is for students to be able to construct a well-written narrative, expository, persuasive, literature response, and a research paper. Students will use all the steps in the writing process. Students will be to write introductions with an engaging hook and a three-point thesis. Students will be able to construct well-developed paragraphs with clear topic sentences and smooth transitions. Students will gain an understanding of the importance of reviewing written work for conciseness, clarity, and grammar. Students will be able to cite sources. Students will adhere to the standard conventions and mechanics of English grammar.
Students will submit final drafts of their typed essay within one week after each unit ends. All submissions will receive feedback. Essays are due on the 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th, and 15th week of class. I encourage timeliness, however, as a flexible scheduled instructor, assignments will be given feedback as they are submitted. My focus is on the writing practice and implementation of feedback, not due dates.
ALL handouts will be provided to the students in pdf AND GoogleDoc format. Writing Journal Pen/Pencil
The learner is assessed through written feedback of each assignment submitted.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
GoogleDocs does require the use of a gmail account. Please ensure your learner has an account set up. This platform will be used for submitting writing and receiving feedback on written assignments. Please Note: You can create a Google Account for your child under 13 (or the applicable age in your country), and manage it using Family Link. With Google Accounts, children get access to Google products like Search, Chrome, and Gmail, and you can set up basic digital ground rules to supervise them.
