If you want a smaller group than Eva’s classes – this is the one you want to register for!
The class is identical to Eva’s —– everything is the SAME!
Jonathan’s writing classes are limited to TEN students!
This is an interactive, introductory class geared towards middle and upper elementary level 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, 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, 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!
Homework is given at the end of each class session. It is expected that students work on their assignment 20 – 30 minutes daily between class sessions.
Students are expected to be present in class, with class notes in front of them, participating actively and asking questions when they arise.
Students are expected to USE their CLASS NOTES (provided by instructor) while writing.
Students are expected to USE their ASSIGNMENT PLANNERS while writing.
Students are expected to USE their COMPOSITION CHECKLIST while editing.
All About Essays is an interactive, fast paced class.
NOTE: Registration deadline is August 15, 2022.
