Writing+ Program: Polish Your Writing Skills.

(K-12, Sept-Jun)

This is a comprehensive English program that teaches vocabulary, reading comprehension, grammar, and most importantly, writing techniques.

The Writing+ program has five levels, spanning K-12, each with the same goal but with a varying pace of progression. All levels aim to educate students on polishing and perfecting their writing techniques, with each writing level governed by a 6-point rubric. Students will spend one hour learning the week’s lesson and reviewing homework. In addition, a half hour will be spent working on individual writing skills such as grammar, vocabulary, or spelling in order to improve their areas of weakness.

In our Writing+ classes, students will cultivate stronger writing skills through various types of compositions (narrative, expository, persuasive, cause and effect, response to literature, book reports, summaries, biographies, etc.) Students will produce one written piece per week and writing techniques will be reinforced by daily assignments. Here are some writing strategies that students will be using:

* Setting a purpose
* Focusing on an audience
* Forming and supporting a main idea
* Organizing ideas in a coherent fashion
* Using a unique, personal voice
* Perfecting word choice
* Varying sentence structures to increase effectiveness
* Elaborating with facts and details
* Proofreading to check for errors
