Please note – this is a PRE-RECORDED – Asynchronous Class.  Students will work through the modules independently.  There are fourteen modules in all.

Students will print out class notes PRIOR to the class, which can be found in CANVAS.

Then, watch the recording of the class,

After that, using their ASSIGNMENT PLANNER and COMPOSITION CHECKLIST will complete the assignment.

The students will submit their work in CANVAS and WAIT until graded BEFORE going onto next module.  Grading time is approximately 5 – 6 days.

All modules must be completed by June 1, 2021.

**********

This is an introductory class geared towards middle and upper elementary level students (Grades 4 – 7).  In this class, students will focus on brainstorming, note taking and writing both fiction and nonfiction pieces. Writing structures will include: summarizing nonfiction, narrative summaries, beginning story writing using narrative summaries, beginning report writing, writing from pictures, and beginning essay writing. Simultaneously, students will also learn how to implement various stylistic techniques to increase description, as well as remove “banned words” (overused, boring words) from their writing.

Each week, Eva will review past lessons to encourage mastery. Parents are encouraged to actively participate in the homework process. Scribing for your child is acceptable (however, don’t change their words!).

Students are encouraged to repeat this class twice. The first year tends to be overwhelming, and in most cases the second year is when their internal “light bulbs switch on” and writing happens!

NOTE: Registration deadline is August 15, 2020.
