Reading Comprehension and Response Paragraph Writing (ELA, Test Taking)

Jackson Pearce Classes: Make My Kid Love Writing
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(1,763)
Each week, the teacher will guide the students in reading a short text, discussing and analyzing it, and then crafting a short response. Students will then read a second short text and create a response on their own to share! Excellent for improving students' test taking, essay writing, and reading comprehension skills.

Emma K. Ohland has been telling stories since before she knew how to write them down. She grew up in the middle of a cornfield in Indiana, but her imagination often carried her away to other worlds. When sheโ€™s not writing, reading, or smelling books, she enjoys traveling, crocheting, D&D, and snuggling with her rescue greyhound. She is the award-winning author of Funeral Girl as well as her upcoming novel Here Goes Nothing, and her work is featured in the short story anthology Out There.

Before publishing, she was an admissions officer of a top 50 university where she read and made decisions on over 5,000 student applications. In addition to writing books, she is also a private college counselor where she helps students gain admission by crafting strong personal narratives utilizing storytelling techniques. Her students have been accepted into top schools such as the UCs, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, University of Michigan, UT Austin, Northeastern, and more.
In this class we read a collection of materials from reliable news sources. While articles may be timely, we will not select articles about more intense subjects (like current war, death, or acts of violence). All articles are generally considered appropriate for a lower middle school audience.
