In-class instruction combined with take home assignments, will help students learn to improve their grammar, organize their thoughts, plan papers, plot stories, and execute a variety of writing and editing techniques over this year long course. Being able to communicate thoughts and ideas through writing is an invaluable skill used not only in English classes, but across other subjects and disciplines as well. This course is well suited for the student who has had some practice writing and has a basic understanding of language arts. I will tailor assessments and grades to your child’s progress as opposed to a set standard for all. In a class where age and grade, and thereby skill, vary, I like to work with students where they are, not where they should be. Writing is a journey, and if you ask me, it’s one of the best ones.
