7 people are attending Powerful Paragraph – SMALL GROUP – LIVE – * B Week * – Full Year – Grades 5-7


In this SMALL GROUP  “technical writing” (nonfiction) IEW writing philosophy class, students will focus on exploring, brainstorming and writing strong, one paragraph pieces. Structures include, but are not limited to: descriptive, chronological, definition, compare/contrast, process analysis, spatial, enumerative…. As this process is happening the students will learn how to use various stylistic techniques that match the appropriate structure, as well as which transitional words work best.

Powerful Paragraphs is a good option for the student who is not yet ready to tackle the five paragraphs expected in Middle School Writing. In addition, if you have a new or a reluctant writer, you will find it is better to build confidence rather than overwhelm your child with a class they aren’t ready for. This is a one-year class.

The goal is to help students focus on making every word count by choosing colorful, powerful words that create vivid pictures using the fewest number of words possible, as well as understanding the specific differences within each structure, and applying the appropriate transitions and stylistic techniques that lend themselves to each structure.

NOTE: Registration deadline is September 15, 2021. There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.

Learning to love the past

Rated 5 out of 5

History. This was definitely not my strongest area as a homeschool mother. I knew to provide my kids with what they needed, I had to look at outside resources. Taking a leap of faith, I registered both my 7th and 8th grader for U.S. History with Jonathan Meola.
Learning history through simple short stories using. “A History of US,” has been fun to read-a-loud. With a subject I once disliked myself, I’ve been able to power through, and engage with my children learning to love the past. Mr. Meola is a phenomenally fair instructor, and has allowed our kids to use their creativity for the semester project. The kids have enjoyed this area most about the class. Seeing their creations from the past come to life is a gift in itself. Thank you, Jonathan! You have lit a fire for history within my children!

We have absolutely loved Jonathan’s Ancient Civilizations class this year.
He is so organized, and his classes are expertly taught – my son usually makes me leave the room but I will often go back and listen to the recordings and watch some of the videos because they are so interesting.
We are thrilled that OTA is now a vendor with our charter school, and since Z will be in middle school next year, we plan on signing up for a lot more classes.
Keep up the excellent job and thanks for making homeschooling so much easier for us parents!

Great Class

I really enjoyed Mr. Meola’s Genetics and Biotechnology course. His classes were very in-depth and challenging. I enjoyed the projects, homework, and experiments and he used great PowerPoint presentations. I feel that I’ve learned more genetics through Mr. Meola’s Genetics and Biotechnology course than I have with any other genetics class, and learning biotechnology for the first time with Mr. Meola was amazing. I would really recommend this course to students out there!

My daughter thoroughly enjoys Mr. Jonathon and was super excited to take another class with him. She learned an immense amount from this class. In fact, she loved it so much that she asked to finish out the class even though she went to a semester boarding school! Me.Jonathon worked with her as she switched school situations and helped her complete the class.
