This dynamic class is perfect for sixth or seventh grade students. It teaches students the basics and fundamentals of grammar. We also learn and practice how to format a paper in Google Docs. Additionally, students will learn to write a variety of papers including: a personal narrative, a compare and contrast essay, a research paper, and a literary analysis. Each student receives personal feedback on his papers so he can learn and grow as a writer. This course blends well with Literature for the Middle School Student to create a complete language arts block. Students should plan on spending 4 hours a week on homework for this course.
