Details: -After class one, students will finish their brainstorming and outline and draft their body paragraphs. -After class two, students will draft their introductions and conclusions and self-revise their essays. -After class three, students will review and apply peer and teacher feedback to do a final revision of their essays. -After the last class, students will have a completed persuasive essay. Students should not feel stressed to complete all the writing in the class. They will be able to complete the writing after and between classes, sending me questions and parts of their writing as needed. I am very responsive to and encourage their messages. If learners do not complete the required work before the class meets, they can still attend the session and work on their essay, however, they will get guidance as the teacher is able between work with prepared students, and the results/goals of the essay class may not be satisfactory.
