Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the building blocks of writing paragraphs.  They will look at opening/topic sentences, use of verbs, adjectives, sentence types and persuasive devices where appropriate for that lesson.  The main learning goal will be for each student to create their own amazing paragraph in the lesson. 
I am a qualified/certified English and Film/Media Teacher in the UK.  I have been teaching now for 18 years, covering language and literature.  I have helped many hundreds of students, of all abilities, develop their writing skills and instil a passion for reading and writing.  I also examine for an examination board.  
Homework is optional.  If some students wish to refine their paragraphs further before the next weeks lesson I will be happy to give feedback within classrooms. 
Writing prompts will be available as part of the lesson. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Progress will be assessed within the lesson through teacher feedback linked with a success criteria developed during each lesson.  Should students wish to be graded then I will be more than happy to do this if requested.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
