Class Experience

Learners will gain an understanding of how sentences work--from the very basic subject/verb building blocks all the way to putting sentences together effectively in a paragraph while avoiding run-on sentences, comma splices, and fragments.
I have been teaching English/language arts for 2 years. I have experience working with all age groups, from elementary school to college, and I have worked with a variety of skill levels, from remedial to gifted learners. I have a master's degree in English, and I write a monthly column in a regional magazine.  
Learners are encouraged to practice their sentence writing skills at home, but this is not a requirement of the class.
Paper and pen or pencil are required each day. A notebook would work well, so learners can keep their sentences together in one place. The content in the class builds each day, so having their previous work will help them move on to the next step each day.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
