Class Experience

The ultimate goal of this class is to have students feel comfortable using compound, complex and compound/complex sentences in their writing. 
In preparing this course, I kept in mind that most students don't find grammar to be the most interesting subject. I find that key to success is to create lessons that don't overwhelm the students with terms and definitions, and to focus on how the ability to use the grammar helps their own writing. I also realize the attention span of students at this age is about 6 minutes, so lessons are fast-paced to keep all students attention.
Homework should not take more than 10 minutes. It will usually consist of writing sentences, or a paragraph, demonstrating the concepts we learned. I suggest students do not do homework right after the class. Since our goal is to have students retain the information, it is usually better practice if they wait a while before they do it.
Progress will be assessed with reviewing concepts and homework in each class.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
