In Writing Reimagined, I will be teaching students how to write a full 5 paragraph essay, complete with an introduction and thesis, supporting evidence, and a conclusion. I will begin by assessing each students' level by having them write a short journal for me on a prompt I provide them. The culminating product for this class is the production of a 5 paragraph narrative essay that your student will begin in stage 1 of the Writing Process, which is brainstorming, and take it all the way to...
Students will learn the writing process and be able to identify several different types of brainstorming. Students will learn what a proper thesis requires, and what supporting evidence is comprised of. They will also learn to write an appropriate, non-repetitive conclusion. Students will also learn various grammar and punctuation lessons and how to write with varied sentence types. Students will learn how to edit and revise their own paper as well as someone else's writing. Students will also learn how to break down the writing process so that it is manageable and does not overwhelm them.
No sensitive or high risk topic addressed in this course.
Depending on how much writing is achieved during class and individual student speed, students could possibly have up to an hour of homework per week. Additionally, depending on your students' level, they may have additional exercises they need to complete in order to remediate a particular grammar or punctuation lesson.
Students will need to be able to write on a software program such as Word or Google Docs, and they will need the ability to share their writing with me, via Outschool portals. Parents e-mailing any assignment is completely acceptable. I will supply curriculum notes such as the writing process, different types of brainstorming techniques, and copies of any grammar or punctuation notes.
Your student will be assessed through their writing at the beginning of the class, through informal grammar and punctuation assignments throughout class, and last, they will receive a graded final paper at the end of our class complete with my comments throughout the paper in order to help the student understand what they have done correctly, and what they need to continue to work on as they write.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
If your student chooses to use Google Docs in order to type and share/submit their papers to me, they must have access to either their own Google account and Gmail, or they can use a parent's Google Docs/Google account and Gmail if parent provides permission for student to use their account. The only reason we will ever use Google Docs is to write our assigned writing prompts and submit them. A Google account with Google Docs is not a requirement for this class.
I provide various notes and instructional curriculum throughout the course.
