Middle School A Week with Jonathan
$ 500.00

This fast paced, interactive class begins preparing your student for high school and (eventually) college level writing. In Middle School Writing, the students will be writing five paragraph critiques, research papers and essays (expository, persuasive and narrative). Students will practice each structure at least twice allowing the student to write the second or third papers with the same structure with more ease.

During class, each structure will be introduced, explained, brainstormed and modeled.  While working on their homework it is expected that they use their handouts for reference.   Students are expected to repeat the entire writing process with some degree of independence. Students might need parental assistance; however, over time we are striving for them to establish their independence as writers.

Students will work on finding their voice through required stylistic techniques that they add into their writing. We also work hard on eliminating the use of the “subject-opener” using various sentence openers. Finally, there is a list of banned words (overused, boring) that the students are not allowed to use, so that they can find more descriptive ways to say what they mean.

There is an emphasis on editing – TRULY editing, by using their composition checklist. However, at this stage editing means revising, revamping, rewriting, restructuring….. not just correcting.

Please note this section is a SMALL GROUP class.

Homework is approximately two hours per week (30 minutes daily).

NOTE: Registration deadline is September 15, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
