Introduction to Writing – LIVE – * A Week * – Full Year – Grades 4 – 7
Monday, August 31 2020 @ 1:00PM - Monday, May 31 2021 @ 2:30PM EDT| $500.00
This is an interactive, introductory class geared towards grades 4 – 7 students. 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, and beginning essay writing. Simultaneously, students will also learn how to implement various stylistic techniques to increase description, as well as remove overused, boring words from their writing.
Each week, Jonathan 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 September 1, 2020.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
