Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(52)
In this 5-week online course, students will learn to write a 5 paragraph informational essay. Students will be provided with weekly feedback to help them grow as writers and make their essays stronger.

Class Experience

Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.
Introduce a topic clearly and group related information in paragraphs and sections; include formatting (e.g., headings), illustrations, and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.
Develop the topic with facts, definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples related to the topic.
Link ideas within categories of information using words and phrases (e.g., another, for example, also, because).
Use precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to inform about or explain the topic.
Provide a concluding statement or section related to the information or explanation presented.
Production and Distribution of Writing:
Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. (Grade-specific expectations for writing types are defined in standards 1-3 above.)
With guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, and editing. (Editing for conventions should demonstrate command of Language standards 1-3 up to and including grade 4 here.)
With some guidance and support from adults, use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of one page in a single sitting.
Recall relevant information from experiences or gather relevant information from print and digital sources; take notes and categorize information, and provide a list of sources.
I am an experienced elementary teacher and a certified reading specialist. I also have a private tutoring business, outside of Outschool, where I spend the majority of my time teaching essay writing. I've always loved writing and enjoy teaching others to write well too.

Students will be provided with both a digital and printable writing notebook. They can use either version or a combination of the two. Students will need to have a Gmail account to access the digital version of the notebook. Student writing needs to be typed in the notebook provided (preferred) or submitted using PowerPoint, Word, or a pdf format so that I can easily give feedback and they can easily revise and edit their work. If students would like feedback on the work in the paper packet, they may take pictures and submit them to me through the Outschool message system. I've provided videos for students who would like to use the digital version but would like some extra instruction to get started.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will provide all needed materials for this course.
