Teacher: Daniela Barrero
Session(s): 3 weeks/ Session 1 or 2
Days: Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Time: 10:00 am - 10:55 am
A course for any students who wants to hone their essay writing skills covering an array of formats (persuasive, narrative, and descriptive) in preparation for the next academic year. After a break down and introduction to each style, students will be required to create their own essay based on research, observation, and personal life experience. Through peer review, discussion, and revisions students will complete three original essays demonstrating their understanding of essay writing.
This class will be a blend of synchronous and asynchronous allowing for students to gain benefit from classroom instruction and discussion while still being able to create original works independently. Scholars will be introduced to the structure of each writing style and then guided through the process of creating their own essay. Each week will consist of live discussion and peer review allowing each student to find support through the process.
