Essay writing. Just the mere mention can send waves of fear through a student. The reason? Confusion over how to actually write an essay. This course will cover the basics of how to plan the skeleton of an argumentative essay, how to develop a thesis and support it, and how to edit the essay to maximize its points.

Students will improve their understanding of basic essay formatting, developing thesis and supporting evidence, effective researching methods, pulling evidence from research and texts (poetry, prose), and composition / editing skills.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts (English) and a Bachelor of Education. I have worked as a full-time English / History teacher, as well as a literacy and ESL teacher over my 16+ years of teaching. My main focus has been working with students with learning differences.
This class cycles every three weeks. At the end of each class, students will be required to complete short amounts of writing; this writing will be used as part of the next class' discussion and formation of a group-written essay.
Students will need access to books, Internet, encyclopedias for the research component of this class.
Students will self-assess as a group, referencing a rubric, as part of the process of learning how to edit an essay. For private sessions, some writing may be marked according to Alberta Education guidelines.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
