Class Experience

Students will learn a research-based and systematic approach to developing their essay writing. In addition, we will use ChatGPT to create drafts of our work to learn from. By the end of the course students will be able to confidently write expository, argumentative, persuasive, and narrative essays.
I have been a writer for 25+ years and a teacher since 2004. The approach that I teach is informed by my work as a graduate student at Boston University, a technical writer and editor at Clemson University, and many professional development courses and workshops, most notably the Institute for Writing and Thinking at Bard College and the EmPower Method from Architects for Learning. As far as ChatGPT goes, I am a novice user.
HW as needed, as wanted.
A couple pencils, an eraser, a notebook, and the standard Outschool tools. Headsets are preferred but not required. Students are encouraged to write their work by hand, but accommodations can be made for those who feel strongly about typing.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learners will be given formative feedback from the teacher throughout the writing process.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The teacher will be "driving" when we use ChatGPT and the learner will only receive text cut and pasted from ChatGPT by the teacher. Your learner will obviously be exposed to AI generated text, but it will go through a human filter. The scope of our conversations with ChatGPT will be limited to generating prose in response to our writing prompts. Students do NOT need a ChatGPT account for this class.

In addition, the class format involves regular cold-calling to support engagement and retention. If your learner is neuro-divergent and requires accommodation, please reach out before class starts to discuss back-channeling options.
