Why This Class
As a parent, you know as well as anyone that kids don’t like rules—and also that there are some rules your student needs to follow to be successful in school and life beyond. In a fun and engaging format, this course helps your student learn the rules for success in writing while continuing to build reading skills.
Mentors in this course continue to guide students toward mastering the fundamentals of spelling, punctuation, grammar, and organizing their thoughts in writing. Through live class sessions and in-depth feedback on assignments, mentors help students improve their skills in both technical and creative writing and also introduce them to new literary concepts and genres. In larger projects, students get to invent their own tall-tale and continue to build essay writing skills.
By the end of this course, students have reached a new level of comfort with the writing process and are technically competent enough to begin shifting their focus to strengthening and clarifying their writing voice.
