Class Information

  Upper Elementary Writing

Can writing actually be fun?! Is there a way to write creative, funny, dramatic stories and still be able to use your grammar and vocabulary correctly?! This class will focus on teaching young writers the creative practice of taking their thoughts and being able to communicate them on paper. The students will learn how to create outlines, make character maps, play vocabulary games and cover IEW writing basics.

  Instructor Bio:
  , I am a certified ESL teacher with a background in linguistics, literature, history and dance. I have taught at Palaestra for many years and more recently started teaching at Home School Connections. My middle school aged daughter keeps me on my toes and is teaching me to enjoy science, specifically chemistry. I really enjoy teaching writing and literature. My goal is to show students that writing can be if not fun, at least tolerable. When I am not "dance momming” or teaching, I am usually knitting.
