When kids have dysgraphia and other learning challenges it can be difficult to get started on a writing project. Reluctant writers need extra support such as a word bank of topic words that they can refer to as they write and graphic organizers to help them brainstorm and execute their ideas. Reluctant writers also do better when they have the opportunity to choose what to write about. Purposeful writing can also motivate reluctant writers. They need to see writing as a way to share...
Students will engage the writing process using supports like graphic organizers to write about a subject that they are passionate about. They will be motivated to do purposeful writing by producing a video game review for their favorite game.

Students have the option of completing and polishing the work they produce in class in order to "publish it" either in the Outschool Classroom or the Write What You Like Blog.
Writing supports such as templates and graphic organizers will be shared in the Outschool classroom before class. Please download them if possible because they will provide support for your students writing. I will also share them in Google Doc form if possible. Blank paper, pens, and colored markers and pencils can be helpful to have on hand if your child wants to be creative.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The teacher will share video game review of one of her favorite games on the Write What You Like blog. Students will have the opportunity to post on the Write What You Like blog with parent permission. https://youcanwritewhatyoulike.blogspot.com/
