Class Experience

All learning goals are designed to support college and career readiness. When both writing semesters are combined, they work together to provide the following learning goals:

Students will develop and sustain foundational language skills related to oral language and vocabulary by listening, speaking, discussing, as well as thinking critically. A variety of nonfiction texts will be used to support the continued development of comprehension skills, response skills, writing process skills, and research skills.

Common Core Standards from CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.11-12 and CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.11-12…
Students will be able to analyze the impact of an author’s rhetorical devices, central ideas, and figurative language. Elements of research and persuasion such as, but not limited to, citations, strong sourcing, claims, counter claims, syntax, cohesion, tone, linguistic choice, as well as a strong thesis and conclusion will be used to support and develop writing skills.
* Certified in the state of Texas to teach English Language Arts and Reading grades 7-12 
* Experience teaching SAT/ACT Verbal Prep
* Experience grading written portions for a variety of standardized tests
* Experience as a professional writer/editor
This class meets once per week. The meeting will be primarily focused on writing activities, lessons, and skill development. Students will be expected to have completed any previously assigned writing tasks prior to attending class to ensure that they are fully prepared for any new assignments.
Students will also need access to the internet for writing and research purposes.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The final semester grade will be weighted as follows:
20% Participation
15% Pre-writing Assignments
20% Analysis Response Paper
25% Persuasive Essay
20% Group Project
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students will need access to the internet to complete assignments. A strong component of this class requires students be able to research. This means that students will need access to search the internet.
