The purpose of this online course is to prepare you for the basics of essay writing. Students will get specific feedback on their work and the material will range from basic paragraph structure to full essays. This course will present essay writing in a simplistic, formulaic manner. Upon completion of this course, students will know the elements of a paragraph and how to create effective transitions. This six-week course works intensively on the three elements of a paragraph: hook, body, and conclusion. By the fifth week students will have written two short essays on a topic of their choice: a three and a five paragraph essay.
Each week there will be at least two assignments due. Students will be writing, revising and critiquing paragraphs throughout the course. By the end of the course students will be able to understand what sentences belong in a specific paragraph and will have experience with multiple drafting strategies.
This seminar begins July 5th and runs for six weeks. This course is run by a certified English teacher. The course costs $300/student. This cost includes written feedback on all assignments and weekly progress reports.
