Class experience

US Grade 10 - 12
Students will learn the essential elements of personal writing from topic selection through introspective reflection. Personal writing is rarely taught as formal instruction in schools and these skills are not inherent. Students will be taught to find a balance in implementing imagery, writing action, and reflecting on the world around them, all while maintaining clarity by following the conventions of English.
I have been teaching English Language Arts courses for 18 years in rural and urban settings. I currently teaching in a public high school in Manhattan, NYC where I teach 9-week Memoir course. 
Homework Offered
After Session 1, students will finish writing a draft of their essays and will read student exemplars as models. After Session 2, students will revise their essays and email the teacher (optionally) for two additional rounds of feedback.
