Description

Group Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will become more coherent and fluent writers by practicing structured weekly writing prompts.
I am a certified English teacher with a Masters of Arts in English. I have certifications in secondary education, gifted education, and special education. I have been teaching for 5 years and tutoring writing for 8 years.
Welcome to our Group! We want all of our learners to feel comfortable, connected, and safe. That's why we have 3 rules we ask you to follow: Be Kind, Be Safe, and Be Respectful.

Be Kind - Help all learners feel welcome and included.
Learners from all over the world, with different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, abilities, gender identities, religions and body types, participate in our Group. Always be nice and make others, especially new learners, know that they belong and are welcome. Teasing, name calling, or bullying anybody in our community? Nope. Not happening here.

Be Safe - Keep your personal information private and never ask other learners for theirs.
Personal things are personal. We want to keep you safe on Outschool, but we also want YOU to understand how to be safe when you're meeting other learners or teachers. Keep your full name, home address, gaming or social media name, email, and school name private.

Be Respectful - Treat others how you want to be treated.
Keep language clean and information you share safe. If you wouldn't say it or share with your grandma, don't do it here. Swear words, and violent images are not allowed. Treat Outschool like a public place, and when in doubt, keep things covered. Before you comment or post, ask yourself if what you are posting is respectful and helpful. If you are commenting on someone's writing, you can share GLOWS (what you liked or something awesome that they said/did) and GROWS (a kind and helpful form of constructed criticism).
View and create posts any time, at your own pace..
