This class is designed specifically for the 12 to 15-year-old student who needs extra time to master the art of Beginning writing. If your student does not have legible penmanship, has difficulty using correct grammar and proper punctuation, and sentence formation then this class is for them. We will begin the year by learning how to write in cursive. We will transition into Dictation and the forming complete sentences, in cursive. Next, we will learn about paragraphs and will spend time in class writing paragraphs in cursive. Lastly, we will write multi paragraph papers with the remaining weeks.
The method of teaching cursive through “Cursive Logic” is a proven and efficient system. Nothing overwhelming, no stress or pressure. Homework and “grades” will be minimal. Each student will be encouraged and coached to improve upon what they bring to the table the first week of class. If your student has anxiety at the thought of a “writing” class, this is the one for them. Together we will set the goals for your child and watch as they blossom into writers.
The last 6-10 weeks in the Spring semester the student will need to be able to use a computer to type and print out their assignments.
