Description

Class Experience

Students will become proficient at constructing well-written paragraphs in a variety of types.
I hold a master's degree with an emphasis in literacy.
In addition, I am a special education teacher in a brick-and-mortar school where I develop the writing skills of students on a daily basis.
I encourage every student to practice misspelled words from their pieces at home every day until they are mastered.  It is proven that commonly used words account for approximately 80% of all written text. Proficient spellers become better writers, since their minds are then free from the pressure of spelling and can concentrate on the craft instead.
After every class, I will email a worksheet which will concentrate on the weekly focus area.  
In addition, students are encouraged to spend 10-15 minutes per day in sustained, independent writing in order to foster skill growth.  
Students are expected to attend class with a pencil and paper on which to write. I will email an optional practice worksheet after each class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
This class will not be assessed unless I am asked to do so.
I am always happy to provide feedback and observations when asked.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will use Canva as a presentation tool.  Students will not need access to the website.
