In this ongoing course, students will meet once a week to learn scientific facts about a unique, unusual animal. Then, we'll write a descriptive paragraph about it. Each week, a new animal will be introduced.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 6
Students will learn to develop stronger paragraphs based on content, fluency, and expression. Brainstorming ideas for descriptive expression will be encouraged.
I'm an international teacher, world traveler and hard-core researcher. I have numerous articles published online, in national and international publications, and I’ve taught writing workshops all over the world. 
Homework Offered
Students may continue to develop their paragraphs at home after class. They may submit their completed paragraph to the teacher for feedback after class, if they wish. For every paragraph submitted after class, the teacher will respond with a private video link to Google Drive outlining the strengths and offering suggestions for improvement. (Due to the high number of completed works I receive through the Outschool Conversations tab, I submit personal feedback on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.)
Assessments Offered
For every paragraph submitted after class, the teacher will respond with a private video link to Google Drive outlining the strengths and offering suggestions for improvement.
Grades Offered
