Excellence in Writing
Student Writing Intensive – Level 1
This class is a technique-based course that will cover the Excellence in Writing program. The course teaches both structure and style; Basic structure starts with making notes from a model composition. Students come up with key words to express main ideas; then work from their notes to reconstruct the original model. Style is covered in detail and students obtain a list of “stylistic techniques” consequently, developing and applying those techniques through actual writing activities. The structure and organization of a paragraph will also be covered in detail, with an emphasis on the topic sentence and conclusion (clincher) sentence. The students will work towards completing a 5-paragraph research essay complete with introduction and conclusion.
For the majority of the school year, students will have time in class for completing assignments. Homework will not be assigned unless the student needs extra time to finish. An expository essay will be assigned during the second semester, and students will conduct research using the internet and written materials. Most of the writing will be in-class, however, your student will need access to MS Word to type up their final essay and e-mail it to the instructor(s) by the assigned due date.
Note: Nicole Thiry will assist the instructor in-class as well as provide grading assistance.
If you would like your student to have additional instruction, please e-mail Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org for schedule and fee.
