Class experience

US Grade 5 - 7
Students will learn about the structure of an essay, outlining, researching, writing good sentences and paragraphs, grammar, punctuation, and editing. They will also gain confidence in their own ability to write and share their work with others.
I love working with kids! I have 13 years of teaching experience, and I have taught in both traditional school settings and as a homeschool parent. I am passionate about helping kids at all levels of their reading and writing journey. It's so exciting when I see a student gain confidence as a reader/writer or when I can help a young aspiring writer achieve their dreams.

My writing experience includes writing copy for marketing materials, ghost writing for corporate executives, technical writing, writing newspaper articles, and writing instructions for digital technology applications. Managing a corporate internal newsletter was one of my favorite projects. I created the newsletter design, interviewed and wrote articles about team members, and managed the editing and submission process for all the contributors. As a hobby, I love to write short stories, poetry, and songs. I can't imagine my life without writing.

My education includes a BA in Communications and a Master of Science in Technical and Professional Communication (MSTPC). Because I have completed 2 years of my BA and all of my MS classes online, I am skilled with the various aspects of online learning. I love using what I have learned to help kids become better at reading and writing.
Homework Offered
Each week, students will have an essay to write. Some weeks there will be more homework than others, depending on the type of essay we are working on. For example, the week we do an expository essay, students will need to do some research on a topic, so this might take them a littler longer than essays where no research is needed.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
After students turn their essay in to me, I will send them written feedback that includes what they did well and any suggestions I have for improvement or other classes that might benefit them.
Grades Offered
Pencil and paper, Word, Google Docs, or Apple Pages can be use to write the essays. Students only need one of these word processing tools (or they can handwrite). Occasionally, I'll add worksheets to the Outschool classroom.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students can use any of the following to write their essays:
Microsoft Word
Google Docs
Apple Pages

During some weeks, kids will need to find an online or hard copy source to support the points in their essay.
Students will need to do some research on certain weeks, so they'll need to find resources to support their topic. During some weeks there will be worksheets and these will be posted in Outschool prior to the start of class.
