Is your student having a difficult time getting their thoughts down on paper? Part of this class will be spent helping reluctant writers find their voice in writing. Various styles and methods will be explored as ways to familiarize your student with different types of writing. Sentence construction, developing paragraphs and writing 3-5 paragraph essays will be the focus of part of this course. Spelling and grammar instruction, and practice will be a regular component of this class. The goal is to facilitate an atmosphere where your student can feel comfortable to bring their skill level, regardless of age or experience, and show progressive advancement by December. Then again, to show further progress from January until May.
