In this weekly writing class, middle school students will strengthen writing skills by learning a new strategy to improve quality of writing each week and following easy steps to respond to paragraph prompts. Great for essay preparation.

Class experience

US Grade 6 - 9
Intermediate Level
Students will grow in their understanding of the paragraph writing process, and in their ability to write quality paragraphs independently. Students will gain an understanding of a specific writing strategy each week. 
I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, and held a Professional Teaching Certificate in Florida to teach English in grades 6-12.  For the past several years I have taught small group English classes, including how to write paragraphs.  
Homework Offered
No homework is required, but students are welcome to complete paragraphs outside of class (that were started in class) and submit them to me for feedback.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Students will be informally assessed through class discussion and practice to ensure student understanding and so I, as the teacher, can adapt the class to student's needs. Students who submit paragraphs will receive personalized video feedback outlining areas of strength as well as specific strategies for improvement.
Grades Offered
Students with unique learning needs are welcome to use any assistive technology (i.e. talk to text). All students work at their own pace. Learners with dyslexia, ADHD, and ASD have been incredibly successful in this class.
Students should be able to write basic paragraphs independently to be successful in this class. 
Students will need paper and something to write with each week or the ability to type in a document such as word or google docs.
