Description

Class Experience

I have over 16 years of teaching experience at the middle, high school and college levels.  This is a valuable skill that lends itself to various other types of writing (news articles, research papers, admission essays, job cover letters, emails, etc.).  There are many classes out there that focus on the 5 paragraph essay; however, for a struggling or reluctant writer, this can seem overwhelming and daunting.  By breaking the skills down into a smaller essay form, students can gain confidence and move into longer essay forms. I always strive to move beyond the dry method of teaching writing by creating engaging prompts and topics that will keep students interested in what they are writing.
Students will be assignment a portion of the essay each week to complete outside of the class lesson.  These assignments are due on Friday of each week.
A powerpoint lesson will be posted in the classroom each week along with occasional handouts.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
