Ages: 14-18 | Length of Class: 6 weeks
Description: This challenging class will entail recognizing and writing about the elements of fiction. Additionally, a very challenging grammar focus will be on verbs and conjugating all of the tenses (much more than just present, past and future), as well as understanding tricky verbs and the active and passive voice. Students will be required to complete a book from a specified list PRIOR to the start of class. This class is highly suitable for all ages from 14-18.
Time required: Approximately 4-6 hours per week (depending on student abilities), plus up to 1 hour weekly online class time.
Method: Students will download and print weekly lessons from a passworded website. We will “meet” as a class online once a week to discuss the lesson and share any questions or ideas. Assignments will be typed in Microsoft Word and will be sent via e-mail attachment. Instructor will make edits and return to students for revisions, and they will then return them to instructor again.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of Paragraph Writing class (and typically, a second session in the form of Paragraph 2) and our instructor recommendation.
Writing Sample: If you feel your student’s punctuation, grammar, sentence development and structure are beyond the beginning classes, please feel free to have your student submit a writing sample here.
