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/her papers so he/she 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. Parents are required to check their student’s work with the provided answer key and or supervise their student while using the instructional videos. Parents are expected to help keep their child motivated and  organized.
