Mr. J.'s Bridge: ELA Supplemental Essay Writing (Middle School & High School)

Class
"Mr. J." (Jeremy Ballard)
Popular
Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(84)
This is an optional supplemental writing course for students enrolled in any of my ELA courses. Drawing on the books and activities from my ELA courses, students will learn how to write four different types of high school essays.

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Students will learn how to organize and write well-structured essays and arguments that go beyond simple summary and identification. Students will learn to use their voice, stylistic devices, and evidence to support their claims. This course is designed as an intermediate writing course bridging students from middle school to high school writing. Students completing this course should have the confidence and the skills to begin working towards advanced high school writing.
I have been a high school English teacher and speech and debate coach for 15 years, specializing in AP English and writing instruction.  I am also a storyteller, writer, poet, and performer.
Homework Offered
Students will compete a prewriting packet each week. This packet will typically be based on the assignments and readings from my ELA courses and should take between 30-60 minutes to complete. Students will then write one, independently timed, single draft essay each week.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Essays will be evaluated holistically, using the 5-point scale. A detailed description shall be provided and explained at the beginning of the course. Essays will be treated as single draft essays, meaning that absolute perfection is not expected. Students that are unable to finish an essay in the time allotted should submit what they have finished. This will allow me to further assess areas of need. Failing to complete the essay does not necessarily mean that a student will receive a low score. The 5-point scale: A=5 (4.5-5): Far surpasses all standards and expectations B=4 (3.5-4.4): above average, exceeds standard C=3 (2.5-3.4): Meets standard expectations and requirements D=2 (1.5-2.4): Needs improvement/meets some expectations but falls below standard F= 1 (0-1.4): Does not meet standard expectations 0=0: did not turn in or did not complete a sufficient amount to grade
Grades Offered
N/A
Sources for this course will be the same as the ELA course within which they are enrolled.  I have multiple ELA courses available and new ones will always be added. No new or additional sources will be required.

Profile
"I am not the teacher that you are looking for," as I wave my hand ever so slightly.

I will not fill your students with rainbows and sunshine. I am not super high tech in the computer age. I don't offer fluff and I have no gimmicks. No puppies,...
