Are you looking for a SOLID jump start for whatever writing classes you choose for 2020 – 2021 school year? If so, this is it!

Eva Goldstein-Meola, certified IEW specialist as well as seasoned reading/writing teacher with over 30 years of teaching experience, is leading this interactive, introductory class geared towards elementary to middle, and/or upper elementary level students. In this class, students will focus on brainstorming, note taking and writing both fiction and nonfiction pieces. Writing structures can include summarizing nonfiction, narrative summaries, beginning story writing using narrative summaries and beginning report 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. Students will receive approximately 30 minutes of homework daily.

NOTE: Registration deadline is March 1, 2022.

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

Excellent class with clear and detailed guidance

Rated 5 out of 5

I believe my rising 7th grader has greatly benefited from taking the summer Powerful Paragraphs class from Eva. There were precise and detailed instructions on brainstorming, constructing varied and expressive sentences, and usage of transitional phrases, all in the context of the different writing structures they studied each week. The weekly reviews of past lessons and the incremental addition of new stylistic techniques were great reinforcement for the concepts being thoughts. It was also useful to have the numerous sample writings provided for reference with each lesson. Through out the class, they kids had a growing list of “banned” words to encourage them to choose more expressive and nuanced alternatives (started with one or two and grew to maybe ~15). Overall, a great class for my child who is still in the early stages of honing his essay writing skills.

Unsung Heroes

Rated 5 out of 5

My daughter loved learning about “unsung heroes” of the Civil Rights Movement: individuals who deserve recognition, but receive little in the history books. Ms. Eva ties in historical background information extremely well to the book to help understand the bigger picture to further appreciate Claudette Colvin’s courage.

Perfect Intro to Life Course for my Homeschooler

Rated 5 out of 5

My 9th grader is privileged to have two older siblings who are currently trying their hands at adulting, so he can passivley learn from their success… and failures, but he was ready for more. This is Life was perfect for him! Enough information to engage him where he was and take him to the next level. The course was well-planned and relevant, with a lot of interaction. We are so happy that we took a chance on Open Tent Academy. This first course did not disappoint.

This class should be mandatory!

I signed up my 8th grader to take this class because I wanted him to start thinking of his future. What I didn’t expect is him initiating meaningful discussion about our costs off living, inflation, budgeting, work-life balance etc. My son will be attending a college-prep high school this fall and has already told me that he wasn’t “going to be one of those kids who blows over $100.00 a month on lattes at the cafeteria!”. I am so thankful for this class. It really got my son thinking of his future!
