Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Students will learn to organize their thoughts to write a persuasive essay. 
I have a master's degree in human services and a master's degree in professional writing from Liberty University. 
Homework Offered
Each learner will write an individual, one to two-page essay after week one. Learners will need to have a good grasp of the characters in "The Devoted Friend" and an understanding of how they will persuade their readers as to what true friendship is and is not. Depending upon the student, it will take between two and three hours to organize and write the essay.
Assessments Offered
After the class, I will give informal assessments of how each student understood persausive essay writing.
Grades Offered
Learners will be required to read or listen to an audiobook of "The Devoted Friend" by Oscar Wilde.  This story is in public domain.  They will need to bring a notebook and pencil or pen to class to take notes. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
"The Devoted Friend" by Oscar Wilde describes bullying in the guise of friendship.  One character dies at the end of the story.
