Essay Writing (G8)
Instructor: S. Ayers| Thu | 5:00PM – 6:00PM | Session: Jan. 4 – Jun. 7 ( Spring 21 classes )
Course Description: Designed for the entering 8th grader, we will focus on developing full paragraphs that provide specific evidence and thoughtful commentary about the selected evidence. Students at this level can usually write a paragraph with the required number of sentences, but the sentences may not flow well or build on each other in the way that a well-written paragraph should. In particular, we will practice narrative and analytical writing. We will also spend a portion of each class reviewing common grammar mistakes and how to avoid them.
